The Gilmore is a terrific museum with beautiful cars. We have visited car museums from the east coast to the west coast. This is among the very best. We normally spend a full day there. A must stop for lunch is the Blue Diner Inn.

If you like cars, especially classic cars or early models of cars, this is the place for you. The multiple display buildings kept the crowds of people viewing different portions of the collection and never did the sites appear crowded.

Stopped by for a visit while the Great Race was there. Always interesting to see the changes to the displays. If you love cars this is one of the best places to visit.
