We just went here today and viewed the autos, travel trailers, trains that are set up and running, motorcycles, and a variety of other artifacts. It's not a big museum; so you can easily see it all in an hour. It's fun and if you...More

We visited Murphy Auto Museum recently. We were hoping to see more antique autos. Most of the autos displayed were classics with a few antiques. There were trailers, but you could not see the interior. We didn't think the $9 entry fee was worth it....More

The atmosphere is casual and can be described as a "big boys shed" if you consider the huge model train layout. The cars are interesting and look to be driven often by their owners. Some of the exhibits are unique vehicles. If you're in the...More
