This museum will surprise you. From the outside it looks like a dive, a low, brown warehouse beside the trans-Canada highway. A sign stating the bizarre claim that it contains Elvis Presley's pink Cadillac suggests that it's a blatant tourist scam. On the inside, however,...More

If you're a lover of vintage cars, you'll get more out of this museum. I wasn't a fan of how they had the cars displayed. You couldn't take a decent picture or really touch any of them. Elvis's pink Cadillac was definitely the star attraction...More

This is clearly a shrine and a labour of love. Much respect for the family who have found, restored and displayed these old cars for so long. Many little pieces of island history. If you don't fancy cars, it might not be for you. But...More

This place is great -- even by international standards. I've visited it three or four times over more than 40 years and it has never failed to delight. It's run by enthusiasts and there's plenty to interest the whole family. The information panels are first...More

We saw the road signs and decided to visit the Car museum. They have a really nice collection and it is well displayed. It was nice to visit with the owner Kevin. Definitely worthwhile spending some time here.
