  • What an amazing collection of cars from the Model T to a Delorean. The display was like walking into history, tons of information about each make and model and creator. Too bad we didn't have time to....  more »

  • Great place to see some beautiful old classic cars. $12 entrance ($10 seniors, $6 children) is reasonable. You can easily spend 2 hours wandering. Some cool NASA exhibits with interactive things for kids.
  • Had a great time here!! I would recommend this place to every gear head out there. They have some of the most amazing cars I have ever seen. Best part was getting up close to Don "The Snake" Prudhomme's funny car, that bought back great childhood memories.
  • Great place with amazing collection. If you are into the history of cars, this is the place for you! If you like new cars, maybe not the best place for you. Join the 2hour free tour, super informative. The museum is split into various zones showing different milestones of the automobile industry. Super well restored cars :) recommended!!!
  • The museum is designed for visitors to stroll through four huge exhibition galleries to discover the history of the automobile and its influence on our lives. Gallery 1 features cars from the 1890s to the 1910s, displaying one of the premium collections of horseless carriages in the world. Gallery 2 contains cars from the early tens to the 1930s. Gallery 3 covers the 1930s to early 1950s, astounding visitors with showiness of chrome and fins. Gallery 4 features the 1950s, race cars and beyond.
  • My husband and I loved the museum. It is huge! It is divided into 4 different time frames and they are full of phenomenal, unique, beautiful and some one of a kind vehicles. The 1960s to current I found to be the least wow-worthy and had a lot fewer vehicles but I had been walking for a few hours by that time and I was ready to be done. Otherwise sprinkled into the exhibits were vintage clothing from the same eras S the vehicles, including dresses, purses, suits and jewelry. It was a wonderful trip through history and every car lover will be in heaven when you arrive. Cant wait to take the kids and friends!
