  • I’ve literally been driving past the Volo Auto Museum my entire life without ever stopping in. Finally decided to take my two 10 year old boys over for a Saturday afternoon. Never realized exactly how...  more »

  • We loved it here. We went on a day where we bought discounted tickets because honestly, normal pricing was too expensive for us, but we understand they need to make money too! We brought the kids here and had a blast looking at everything. Even saw lightning McQueen for the little one! They had these cool Disney scenes from select movies. I included a picture of 101 Dalmatians...that was really cool.
  • The Volo Auto Museum is now a $15 admission ticket. The museum is spread across several buildings very full of cars, snowmobiles, military displays, outboards, jukeboxes and more. I'd guess about four hours to really see everything. I brought a camera and went kind of slow. Most of the display sale vehicles are crammed together very close to each other. It can be tough to get the shots you want. I didn't realize ahead of time that Volo is not so much a museum but a dealer of of these collector cars. Most of the cars there are for sale. In addition to the muscle cars and hot rods there are plenty of other displays. Volo Auto Museum is definitely A-OK.
  • My son & I visited after our overnight trip from Chicago last Sunday. I was impressed by the variety of cars in each of the 5 buildings. We actually loved the fact that most of the cars there are for sale. We were a fan of the Volo House of Cars show we saw on Amazon Prime and this made us want to visit! We were even able to meet Jay Grams and ask him about a Saleen Mustang that was on their website. Jay was nice talking with us. We also met a nice gentleman there that details and preps the cars. He, too, was friendly and you can tell he shares in the family's passion for cars! We really would recommend that anyone who has a passion for cars go and visit!
  • LOVE this place! You will be pleasantly surprised of cars in 5 showrooms. If you love old classic cars this is a must see. A gem in a far out area. Attached is large multiple buildings for antique collectors. Give yourself at least 2-3 hrs to enjoy every car but they close promptly at 5:00 pm
  • Volo Auto Museum is one of those special gems that only comes around once in a generation; luckily we live in that generation! Whether you're a car guy like me, or a movie/television buff, there's a little something here for everyone to see in terms of the car world! Definitely family friendly and lots of walking involved, but it's all worth it! If you're into model cars, they have that as well in the giftshop next to the main entrance; it's at the end of the building. Very reasonably priced classic and modern models that you probably won't find anywhere else!
