Great little auto museum

Good collection of cars. Most of the cars are Fords. A good place to spend a few hours looking around. Our guide was wonderful. He took some pictures of our group with our cameras.

I received a tour of the museum in the summer. It really is very nice and so well laid out. The staff was very informative as well! My only complaint is I wish there was more to see! I definitely like to recommend it to people looking for something neat to do in town.

Great variety of cars. Very inexpensive admission fee. This is not an all day museum but it's nice if you have an hour or two.

Great collection of vintage cars and memorabilia on the center of town, located in a car dealership. Enthusiastic owner/guide provides a wealth of information. Cars range from 1900's to modern.

Most but not all of the cars are Fords and there is a great historical collection to see. The oldest car in La Crosse is not a Ford, but its home is there. If you like old cars, this is an excellent museum.

Many unusual autos on display in a nice setting. They had some vehicles situated in front of a movie screen like they were at a drive-in theater. This is a Ford dealership so they had many old Ford's.

We had a slight hard time finding this place because the GPS took us to the back side of the building. It is a storefront that if you were not looking you would miss it. There is an entrance fee of $5.00 There are approximately 40 or so cars. Pristine condition. All Fords but one I believe. You can stay... More

We visited the area for our wedding anniversary. My husband loves cars, so this was an important stop! The gentleman at the door was very friendly and helpful. The cars on display are great! There is a lot that was original on each car although some were 100 years old! Each has a history displayed, so that is helpful. When... More

I took my nephew here for about an hour or so to look around. The cars ranged from about 1905 to present. We had a great time. The guide was super friendly and informative. The timelines displayed on the walls go beyond automotive history. All proceeds go to charity. I would recommend this place.

Situated at the Dahl Ford dealership, this small museum is packed with exquisitly restored cars. They range from a 1905 Cadillac to a 2006 (Ford GT Heritage). Most of the cars are Ford Motor Company vehicles but others include Chrysler, General Motors, and Nash cars. They are fascinating to look at with their three pedals (accelerator, backwards, forwards), their accessories... More
