For sure worth a visit. The building itself is a piece of art already. A couple of very nicely done up cars. The 2006 winner of the art car parade is a real masterpiece, unbelievable how much time did they spent to put all these...More

This free museum is a worthy stop when in the downtown area. There is a rotating group of cars on display, all uniquely and outlandishly decorated. The creativity and detail is truly special and you can get up close to see the cars, which gives...More

Since I left, the incredible Art Car Parade now has a permanent home. Don't miss this Museum if you can't be there during the Parade. These are NOT really cars; they are fantastical, whimsical art pieces.
