My husband and I toured this museum and found the tour guide and the collection of vehicles to be excellent. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting details about each item on exhibit. It is definitely a place worth seeing!!

I'm not a huge car enthusiast but went because other people in my group wanted to. I was happily surprised at what I saw and learned. Dick Soper, our tour guide was simply amazing and made history come alive. He is a treasure!
