  • It is always a pleasure & education to visit this venue. The exhibits are top notch, changing frequently so no 2 visits are the same. There are fun activities, good food & beautiful views inside & out towards the city & waterway. My family has been going since they opened 5 years ago & we'll soon be taking our next generation on their first visit. ;{)
  • What a fabulous world class car museum. With many beautiful, unique automobiles on display. Many will take you down memory lane. I also has simulators and a slot car track. Fun for the whole family. Don't drive by this museum.
  • Simply amazing. Literally overflowing historical/exotic cars all around. Many hours will be well spent if you are a car enthusiast. Also very affordable entrance fee.
  • My son and I love this museum. We visit several times a year to see the various exhibit changes. They also have other fun activities like outdoor evening movies during the summer.
  • If you're a car nut, this is a definitely a place you've got to stop. It has over 300 cars inside and it's the closest many of us will come to some of the more rare vehicles that have ever been made. The worst part of it was my daughter picking out my next few vehicles for me... they have expensive Italian tastes.
