  • I've lived in Buffalo my whole life, and only just went here for the first time recently. It was extremely interesting, definitely unique place to spend a day or just a few hours, and I was really pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed myself! Definitely worth taking a look if you're interested in cars at all.
  • As we live in Western NY we have said that we wanted to go here for a number of years. We finally got there and were impressed with the amount of items on display. Not only are there cars and motorcycles but also bikes. The Frank Llyod Wright Filling Station is actually located in the building. We were disappointed that we could not walk through it. If you are a car buff and into early models you will definitely enjoy this place. I do think it would be lost on the younger generations as it is now.
