  • The docent-lead tour of The Revs Institute is a gearhead's dream. Even someone who is not a 'car person' will be entranced by this collection.  more »
  • This was our second visit, bringing friends for their first visit. We spent 2 hours and that was moving along at a moderate pace. As an artist and art historian, I view these cars as works of art - th...  more »
  • If you like cars and specifically race cars, you must visit. In addition to an awesome collection of race vehicles, they also have many older and obscure ones, all beautiful and impressive.  more »

  • A jewel under the many private car museums. Spectacular vehicles, all in drivable condition and some in authentic, original state (and not over restored). A lot of European car brand to see, that don't exist anymore an an amazing collection of race cars! The docents there are marvelous, friendly and soooo knowledgeable. Book a tour. It is really worth it. Only minor thing I can criticize: You need to book your tickets in advance, but we called 1 h before we arrived and it wasn't a problem to visit (thanks to the very friendly staff there). One of the most beautiful car museums I`ve visited so far and a MUST for classic car fans!!
  • To our surprise upon our arrival to the museum we found it was sold out. I decided to go inside any way only to confirm what was posted outside the door. We were greeted warmly by a very sweet woman that was working the register at the door. She noticed my son was somewhat disappointed when she confirmed what we read. She then asked him where he was from and he replied that he was here visiting me from PA. After a few moments she so kindly asked us to step back and wait for just a few minutes. She then called us back up and said we were welcome to go in. I am so happy she did. It made his whole trip!...An excellent collection with knowledgeable staff at every turn (I wish we would've had more time just to listen to some of the incredible stories). Thank you so much and also to the owner for putting together a wonderful team and kindly sharing to the public this priceless collection. I can't say enough about this and will be back again soon to share with others.
  • Greatly enjoyed the visit and learning from the knowledgeable individuals whom take car history to heart. Don't be afraid to ask them questions and just enjoy the "rolling art" before you.
  • Loved it. Really knowledgeable guides and some amazing cars.
  • Truly one of the great auto museums in the country- classic or otherwise! The number and variety of cars, from the oldest classics to Formular 1 racing cars is amazing. The tours are very informative and will adapt to the audience (you don't have to feel awkward asking a question if you're not a car expert). The REVS relationship with Stamford University provides a dimension that is not found in other car museums. Plus, the fact that most of the cars still operate and are taken out regularly for driving by professional drivers and engineers on the test track is also unique and impressive. If you have any interest in cars or would like to learn more, this is the place for you!
