  • Such a great experience! There are approx 10 museums all with a different theme. Antique cars, cars from movies, Disney theme, music hall, tractors, war, vintage mobile homes, trains, and a torture/gangster museum. Something for everyone's interest. Easy to walk through everything in about 6 hours if you're looking in detail or faster if you're just breezing through. The coolest part was the vintage arcade games in the Disney part of the car museum. I also loved the music hall with all the self playing live band vintage music machines. Bring $1 or $5 bills to get tokens for some of the interactive parts of the exhibits. There are machines to change out for tokens but the majority are cash only. There is a little cafeteria with pizza etc at the start! There is a path to follow but besides the car museum you go from building to building so you can break away if you don't want to do all the museums in one day.
  • Very nice exhibit my kids loved it! The new park is great as well. However it is on the small side so a little over priced at $15 for anyone 5 and over it only took about 20 min to walk through. The food is also very expensive one we got 2 slices of pizza, and one hot dog and it was over $30.
  • Went for birthday. I enjoyed the experience very much. Different care designs and growing up as a kid, I remember watching TV shows and liking the different cars. Brought back a lot of memories that is for sure. It is difficult to navigate through the 58 acre museum with not the best signs. They have old school cars that are for sale as well. Overall, it was a great experience. They even have an antique mall which has many interesting treasure in there.
  • A little expensive for such an exhibition, but my son really liked it. Hot dog for 10$ also seemed overpriced, but the restored animatronic stage show smoothed the price a bit. Fun place for kids!
  • We love this place, have been there 4 times last year with the kids and they love all the cars. It also has the dino garden amd the antiques shop which is pretty cool too. Should stay there at least 3 hours to fully enjoy it
