  • Didn't see Elvis' birthplace and don't regret missing it. Did see this museum and overjoyed that I stumbled upon it on the 'net and thus did NOT miss it. Not to put down Elvis fans (one can be both), ...  more »
  • My sister and I love cars but we have never seen anything like this. They display them chronologically starting with cars from as far back as 1903! They were in mint condition and we were fascinated.  more »
  • This was such an unexpected and awesome stop along our way. We saw a billboard and decided to check out it and so glad we did. So many restored cars from so many different era's. A good amount of the ...  more »

  • Definitely worth checking out. The layout is efficient so I'm not sure why some have reviewed negatively for the warehouse layout. My fiancee and I liked it. Each car has a speaker you can press for information.
  • Like a car show in a ghost town. Bland presentation. Cars are lined up in a large, warehouse-like space. No comparison to the Museum of Speed in Lincoln, NE or the Peterson in Los Angeles, both of which provide a fantastic presentation experience. Nice assortment of early marques, though no steam or electric-powered models. A few very rare and beautiful cars are worth the admission as it is doubtful you will see them anywhere else.
  • It seems like more of a cool collection of cars vice a history lesson in the development of the car throughout it's history. It is a big room with cars, mostly in chronological order. There are old speakers with buttons on top to learn about many of the cars. It was $10 for adults and $5 for kids, I think. My 1 year old was free. It was neat to see the cars through time, and the audio explained a little how some cars impacted the industry. However, it would have been nice to have boards to read with my kids constantly talking, any background noise made it hard to follow. Also, some cars had no information or the speaker was broke. For example, the Model T had nothing but a sign saying what it was. I wasn't able to get a true sense of what modifications each car brought that changed the automotive history. All in all, I would recommend it. Probably about an hour to move through with selective stopping, a couple if listening to each speaker. Not long at all if just strolling through.
  • The birth place of Elvis Presley and car museum were wonderful. Will definitely come back and spend more time here
  • If you are a car guy it is well worth the admission $. There are very early cars that I have not seen in any other collections. The staff is friendly, glad I had the time to visit and enjoy it.
