  • 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 real rarity - a museum where every car drives and every plane flies. The staff is kind and knowledgeable and the volunteers are legendary.
  • If your remotely into transportation of any kind(cars,planes, or trains. Sorry boaters) this museum is fantastic! So many amazing cars and airplanes with very interesting display board! They host many outdoor events spring through fall from air shows to classic car auctions right on the Owls head airport tarmac.
  • Great place to see vintage cars, motorcycles and planes. Most of the collection is up to about the 1930's, but there are a few really cool 1960's and 70's cars depending on what's up for auction. There is a good section on racing here too. I think the real gem of this place is the volunteers and there vast knowledge of what's on display. Got to ride in a Model T and 1933 Packard! For free!
  • My nieces and I had a great time. It held their attention quite well.
