This museum is off the charts wonderful. The variety of cars is amazing, the campus itself is so clean and the people are very friendly. There's so much to see plan on at least a half a day. The diners also serves really good food.

The Museum is located in Hickory Corners in Michigan, about 40 miles from Grand Rapids. They have more than 300 vintage and collector vehicles and motorcycles from all eras are on display in over a dozen vintage buildings. Lots of history. All ages enjoy it!

My husband is the car enthusiast but I really enjoyed our afternoon here. The exhibits are well done. It is as much of a history museum as it is a car museum. It really is several museums in one!
