This is what some of our visitors have to say about the Museum:

“What an incredible treasure your Museum is. I was humbled and stunned at the beauty of the automobiles.”

S.E., PA

“The mark of a great museum is providing interest for everyone and this one ranks right up at the top.”

Touring New York Magazine

“Great information on labels with each car and great, knowledgeable guides. The outside doesn’t reflect the jewels inside!”


With so much to see, most visitors spend a minimum of 1 1/2 hours in the Museum.  When planning your visit, please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the 170+ vehicles on exhibit.

We do permit photography for non-commercial purposes, so don't forget your camera or video recorder.

Strollers, wheelchairs, and motorized scooters are available for use at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis.
