  • Fantastic museum. Lots of cars from different era's along with several vintage airplanes. The cars and planes are excellently displayed and I really enjoyed several areas in the museum that displayed videos related to the exhibits. Great place to visit for both kids and adults. We will be sure to visit again.
  • We drove to the Museum and were pleasantly surprised by the collection of vintage cars and planes.. Very well maintained and the place is huge. For $14 entry fees - This was time well spent. Fun fact - do find all the horns and blow them !!!
  • Great museum! My car-loving five year old was in heaven. Lots of cool cars, planes, bikes, and more to see! We were really glad we went on a rainy July day.
  • A great museum tucked away in Owls Head. To get the most bang for your buck, try to visit during one of the scheduled vehicle shows. But it's worth the price of admission anytime. Planes, cars, motorcycles, and a few suprises. Fascinating machines and stories of the pioneering people who pushed the technology forward.
  • A great place to lose yourself, friendly staff and volunteers, The museum is well laid out and the collection of planes and autos speaks for itself
