What a place!

My family took my father here for his 70th birthday, and what a trip down memory lane for him! He loved pottering around the cars from his child hood and inspecting the expert craftsmanship. We initially factored in about 2 hours here, but after 4.5 hours we walked out. Tim the tour guide was an absolute legend and his knowledge behind just about every item here is amazing, he even fired up an old supercharged Packard which was pretty epic for everyone in our group. I highly recommend this place for both young and old, we took my sisters kids who are 8 and 4 and they had an absolute ball

Rare and huge collection

We were very impressed with the personal tour we received at this car museum. There were some rare finds and an overwhelming number of not only cars but other vehicles, farm equipment, bicycles and motorcycles, rifles and more. Well worth going out of you way to find this gem.

Historical and Welcoming

Really great museum. Very welcoming and lots of cars, motorbikes and machinery. Allocate at least two to three hours then a cafe is next door for lunch. Well worth the visit.
