This is a good place to stop and learn about the people that made modern automotive transportation possible. The staff was extremely friendly and will tell you its not a car museum. It a great place if you like reading the signs. I wouldn't recommend this for small children. I had a couple extra hours to burn and this was well worth it for me. There were only a few cars in the museum. I was able to see most of it in two hours.
If you're any age or level of automotive enthusiasm, the Automotive Hall of Fame is a must see. The entry fee is cheap, and the entire presentation is absolutely beautiful. Our docent was named Tony Cafaro, and he was a true professional. Tony was very friendly and knowledgeable. He literally took time to make sure we understood everything we looked at. People like that are hard to come by, and it added to our enjoyment. I would recommend visiting the Hall of Fame if you're anywhere near there. You won't be disappointed!
