  • When I was there it was 10$ ticket to walk through and look at the historic cars it was very cool. A few things to Keep in mind the front of the museum is a bicycle shop so don't be off put, and they rent thier cars out as movie props so the whole collection may not be there but still alot of cool cars to look at. I would 100% recommend always.
  • Really enjoyed seeing all of the cars. Many were used in movies.
