  • A wonderful surprise for a history buff but not a gearhead. Some of the beautifully preserved collection of Rockefeller and IBM founder Watson.

  • Great transportation museum with some unusual items in their collection. Plenty of parking, reasonable fees and a nice gift shop as well. Great place on a rainy day or anytime you want to wander around and learn something new. Looks like a great place to host an event as well. Stop in should you be in the area, it’s fun!
  • Beautiful. The displays are well kept. A few of the displays I've never seen before and had no idea that is was a real thing. My favorite was the the Ferrari 355 racing game. And seeing Michael Schumachers F1 car.
  • Excellent place to rekindle memory lane. Bring your parents for a great afternoon of quality time. Lots of history here dating back to the early 20s or so. Lots of great finds, even a 1935 Packard. I'm fond of Packards and Cadillacs.
  • Went to see a car and air show and it was absolutely amazing. There were many cares from the 1900’s. They had an amazing selection of planes for the air show. Stunt acts were great!
  • Interesting and wide ranging items. I always enjoy the quirky items and the display of failed technology is interesting. Clean and well maintained. Well worth a stop if you are in the area.
