The whole facility was amazing, all cars were in remarkable condition, very large selection. Many other older items...too many to mention. Definately worth the admission.

The diner was busy and though not the main feature the food was good and well suited. The museum at $20 per adult was a bit over the top, $80 for two adults and two teens just seemed overly expensive along with a meal (lunch)...More

Interesting to see how cars, bikes,toys and many other things were in the past. Most of the display I remember and it is staggering as to how far technology has come. The retro cafe is well worth a visit too

How much time have you got ? What an awesome display, vehicles from many time periods and origins, with an amazing array of ancillary collectables. This display is not designed just for big boys to drool over. My wife is often bored with car displays,...More

Not a car buff but had a really great time. Its embarrassing how many old things I recognised! Lots of beautiful cars and bikes on display along with driving related memorabilia. Old petrol bowsers, spark plugs, picnic equipment. Well worth the time and entry fee.

We had a lovely time looking at the beautiful cars that was on display. As always there are a couple of them that you wish to own. Found the entry price a bit steep.

Second visit to the museum; last one was about 5 years ago. Many of the cars had been swapped for different ones, so made it quite interesting.
