  • If you are a fan of the automobile, this is a must stop. If you appreciate design and technology, this is also a good stop! I would like to return after they build the TV part out.  more »

  • Very interesting & well thought out museum. My husband is a car buff & was a mechanic for 45 years so cars are his thing. They have a short little film about the collector which is quite interesting. ...  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.
