  • A lot bigger than it looks from the outside. Great way to kill an hour. Cheap admission, my four year was free. Friendly staff. Lego and coloring table for kids who aren't interested in the old cars. Beautiful old cars. By the way, Seal Cove Road from Southwest Harbor is mostly gravel. You might want to take the long way around.
  • Really nicely laid out museum with a sizable collection of vintage brass cars. It was a rainy day when we visited and parking was a bit of a problem as everyone else seemed to have the same idea. Well worth the admission price.
  • This is the best place for people who like classic cars all of the employs are the best they have the best cars that I've ever seen. From Ilya I had the best time when I when in September 1/2015 THANK YOU Eric Novella
  • This is a really cool place to when you want to do something different. Very nice and knowledgeable staff. My 4-year old daughter loved it here. It was a great place to spend a rainy afternoon and well worth going to.
  • Amazing collection of pre-1920 automobiles, as well as a handful of bicycles and motorcycles from the same era. There are informational placards for almost every vehicle. The wood-bodied Peugot was my favorite exhibit although I loved seeing some of the old coaches with 3-4 rows of bench seats as well. All in all a definite must see for anyone traveling through the area. Admission is cheap too, only $6!
