It's not the easiest place to find - but the collection is laid out well and has good signage. The museum is a labor of love for those who work there.

Nice stop during a trip. My husband loves cars so when we found this museum he was excited. Good amount of very old cars. Clean and comfortable to walk around.

Great museum. Cars were all beautifully restored with informative plaques. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Walter, one of the staff was extremely helpful. My grandson, a real car enthusiast loved it. Great museum, reasonably priced and easy to get to.
