Took my three kids and spent about 2 hours looking around. Great collection cars from 1900 to 2018. Well worth a trip for car lovers. Free photo included and a few fun things for the kids.

There are cars for every type of car lover that you can imagine. At this time nothing like the Jetson's flying car but when it becomes available I am sure that they will have one there for viewing.

I am not a huge car guy but this place is really cool. So many types and styles of motorized vehicle with story lines and great descriptions and stories about the vehicles.
