“As many have stated after going through the museum, give yourself at least 2 hours. More, if you're a real car nerd, since the cars you will see are real gems and the details are worth the extra time spent. Many are truly one of a kind, that you will only see in this very special place. I was there during the grand opening many years ago and a couple of years after that, for a special event. The venue and docents have only gotten better with the years and I will continue visiting the museum over and over, as they display more unique machines over time.”
