  • The name is misleading. Historic Auto Attractions is much more than cars. It's s celebration of America and Americana. There are cars galore, but they're surrounded by exhibits that bring the owners and the times to life. Cars of the stars are surrounded by their owners clothing, photos, guitars, etc. Stars of historical figures are surrounded by photos (often bigger than life) and extensive information. In addition, there are exhibits on all the U S Presidents, with detailed information on President Kennedy, Jackie, and their families.
  • Great place! Had an opportunity to talk with one of the people in charge of the place. He told me that they are always changing up the place every year. Which is wonderful to hear!
  • A nice collection of classic cars, guns, movie memorabilia and more. We spent about two hours wandering through looking at everything. Definitely worth a visit if you're nearby!
  • Probably the best private collection of Hollywood memorabilia and automobile sales in the Midwest.
