This museum is absolutely beautiful. The cars obviously are the main attraction, but the history and videos accompanying most of the cars/exhibits is really interesting. Take the time to stop and read them!

This museum has an extensive collection of old, more modern, and funky automobiles and trucks, and motorcycles on 4 levels of museum. Walking is easy by way of up and down ramps. An elevator is also available. It is worth the price of admission.
