A fun place to go when having time to explore! We liked the diversity of cars, Indian Art, Cowboy memories, history and a huge array of animals well displayed. The staff were helpful. It was a little hard to find and signage would have helped!
Seeing these vintage automobiles was truly a privilege. The museum is very quiet, clean, and a fun experience. The descriptions for each auto are concise and well written, and give you great insight into the history of automobiles. The other sections of Blackhawk Museum are nice even though they’re not the star of the museum. They also offer student and senior discounts.
