This is a hidden treasure for car buffs. The cars are well detailed and there is descriptive information with most of them. Great gift shop also.

Although a relatively small car museum, everything is in pristine condition and very clean. I liked that we could walk around it at our own speed.

The museum has examples of cars from 1912 - 1930s. There is an Edsel, early T bird & several later special interest cars. Many have participated in the Great American Race. There is a good representation of model A & model T cars

We were camped right next door so thought we better take a look. Glad we did. Great antique car museum. Beautiful old cars and trucks. What a collection. If you are interested in old cars, this is the museum for you.
