  • Just checking it out. The guys wanted to glance @ some old cars and it was on our way home. The place is nicely kept up with some beautiful cars parked out front to catch your eye & some are for sale!...  more »

  • We stopped in at the Car Museum on a Monday afternoon. Looking at the few cars parked in the lot maybe should have told us something. While there are many interesting cars to look at but $19 to get an...  more »

  • There are some very nice cars. Some of the displays are lacking some detail. Would be nice to get more information about all the cars.
  • Bloke who works here (around 60-70) has a very bad attitude. He even shouted at us when we used one of the exhibits that we were perfectly allowed to use as it had a hands on area. He then argued with another in our party. Either he needs to change his attitude or he needs firing. Also didnt explain anything about what we were looking at. Very, very disappointed. Has good reviews too...Never coming back though. Ruined our day out....
  • Great selection of cars, some motorcycles, and a few race cars. Older building, but it gives much character. I thought the building in itself was neat.
  • Really cool collection - some cars owned by celebrities, odd & interesting makes and models. Right across the street from the Ringling Circus Museum and much more affordable!
  • They had some nice cars but it was really small. It was $12 to get in and it took 5 minutes to walk through everything. It's a privately owned "museum" so I don't want to seem like a downer as my guess is that the $12 entry fee helps pay the rent.
