Beautiful and classy. The cars are amazing! If you are a car lover, piano, organ, or even a music box lover, then this is the place for you! Top it off with the classic look of the ball room (for the cars) and curved staircases, it's brings back the old Hollywood/historical feel. I love this place! Have been bringing back people so that this kind of venue can continue to be appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful time!
This is a beautiful place. They have a large collection of vehicles from the 20s and 30s. They also have a large collection of spark plugs, hood ornaments, brochures, awards, lights and their own library. The staff is fantastic, always willing to answer questions. Take the time to go through the train and check out some beautiful interiors, you are also allowed to enter the engine. Free parking and free entrance, just be sure make reservations for the tour across the street. Plan ahead for that.
