This is a great place to visit whether you're into cars or not. It's sort of in the middle of nowhere, but gorgeously well kept. There are a ton of cars from different eras and some other attractions too (pedal cars, motorcycles, miniatures). Think of The Henry Ford museum, but mostly cars. Outside of the main museum, there are several barns of historical interest that have even more cars displayed beautifully. There are frequent special events and car shows in a huge field on site too. There is a working diner, a historical gas station, and more to see. We make a trip here every year for the Mopars at The Red Barns show.

Simply a beautiful display of automotive history. Each era shown with pictures and images surrounding the cars. Large air conditioned buildings house these automobiles. The buildings themselves tell a story of what is was like in those days...It's I've visited several car museums. This one was well thought out while they were building it.

What a wonderful place to see just about every type of car you can imagine from the past! There are over 10 buildings filled with vehicles and other artifacts. Just about every vehicle is in pristine condition. Those that aren't, the curators chose to leave them in the condition they were found. They also have a 1930s era gas station, and a 1950s Diner. Throughout the year, there are a number of car shows. Do yourself a favor, and check this place out!

Haven't actually been in the buildings or barns yet, but yesterday was their Wednesday car show. My cousin brought his '67 Mustang over and my uncle brought his '37 Chevy over. It's such a nice place for a car show! Lots of cool cars to see, and best of all, it's free! I would love to return so I can see what's in the buildings and in the barns.

Absolutely amazing place came here for my birthday. They have a jaw dropping amount of room making it very comfortable for any size group. I will definitely be coming back. Hands down the best car museum I've ever been to in my entire life A++. Also great for the whole family even kids.
