  • The cars were beautiful. And there was so much more than that! My husband, our two year old son, and I all enjoyed it. Each having our own favorite "display"! Would love to go again. Oh, and the antique store just pulls you further and further in with items triggering memories and excitement! I wanted to buy out a quarter of the store!
  • Hidden gem north of Chicago. The entry price is super low and you most definitely get your money's worth. The Betti-Boop diner is so-so but you can bring picnic food and eat outside in the garden. Get ready to take a ton of pictures and spend a good 2-3 hours walking through the displays. Make sure to take a minute to see the military display; small, but one of the best I've ever seen.
  • Love going there looking at the collection of cars and other antiques. Also a great place to just walk around and explore. Never a dull moment
  • Had never been there, but went today with my son to see Svengoolie. An amazing place for any type of car enthusiast plus a huge antique mall. Strongly recommend, although $7 for a slice of pizza and a drink is far too much.
  • I was visiting the area with my family for my little brothers Navy Basic Training graduation and I am so glad we found this place! They have a plethora of awesome cars for all different generations. They also have something for everyone, and even the individuals in our group that weren't "car people" enjoyed the museum! There really is something for everyone, this is a must go place for anyone visiting in the area. I'm not sure if this has already been done, but this stop should be advertised to the families visiting the area Navy graduation. This was a great experience and certainly more memorable than spending family day bowling or looking for something to do.
