  • One of the finest motor museums I have visited. One of a kind private collection, many of which have been restored in-house to near new condition. Only Gateway Motor Museum and Barber Motor Sport Museum come close. Over 550 vintage vehicles. A must-see-before-you-die venue.
  • This museum ranks amongst the best we’ve been to. Cars are grouped under the national flags of their country of origin. Interesting stories involving the car’s histories and owners are posted beside the cars and shared by museum caretakers. Below the main floor are even more cars in various states of renovation. Rides and demonstrations of the vehicles are scheduled at various times. We spent 4 hours here but could have enjoyed several more. One amazing auto museum. We will be back!
