I've passed by this garage hundreds of times and never thought it would be worth going in even though I love classic cars. We recently had our high school reunion there and it was AMAZING! There is a wonderful ball room space for events and the museum is actually quite large. There are at least 30 cars to look at. My favorite was an old 1920's car from India with wicker and wood. They also have great signs and other memorabilia to purchase. It really is worth it to go!
A really great collection of vintage and classic automobiles. The museum is beautifully laid out. They've displayed some great artwork. Lots of vintage oil and gas company signs, several car related advertisements and other period pieces. It's like taking a stroll through automotive history. So sorry to hear of its closing.
