This is our fourth visit to the museum. New additions make return visits a must. We spend 2 - 2.5 hours and bring along new friends to enjoy. The addition of another space vehicle and a few more presidential limos were interesting. We did miss the Lee Harvey Oswald headstone which is no longer at the museum.

Heard about it on a show that I watch. It is a very cool place to go to. There is alot of things to see and there was alot of things that I didn't know. I plan on going there again when I have some time.

There are of course historic cars. However they also have an Abraham Lincoln collection, an extensive collection of JFK artifacts, and TV props from classic TV shows. It... More

This place is AWESOME!!! Tons of memorabilia and not just cars!!! It's $13 for an adult admission and the place looks small from the outside with zero signage to let you know what is in there so we were a little spectacle but we had a great time!! They have stuff from the old west, movies and TV shows, presidential... More
