  • This place is great! If you love classic cars it's a must see. They have multiple levels and tons of amazing cars. And they change things around so its not the same cars at all times  more »
  • Fascinating display of so many classic cars! The artistry and sculpture-like beauty, especially of the old luxury vehicles, is amazing. It’s fun to get up close and examine the beautiful details. Only...  more »

  • This museum has an amazing collection of cars. These cars are absolute wonder to see as it goes back to the beginning of the history when the cars were made. The storyboards, theaters showing details around these cars make the trip even exciting. There are several places where the kids can enjoy too along with seeing these master pieces. A car simulator area where you need to pay and enjoy the amazing car driving experience for six minutes. It takes a lot of effort for the staff to maintain the glaze of these cars and they have been doing it beyond perfection. If you are interested in cars and history, then this place will take 3-4 hrs for you to cover the entire museum.
  • We love this museum! Such a community spirit here. Amazing cars and great detail about them. One of the nicest museums, and most interesting, that I've ever been to. The cafe was OK. Street tacos don't have crispy taco shells in general. But that is what we received here. Also, they were out of pretzels.
