They are small but have cars we a have never seen before. The host was knowledgeable about local history and connects the cars to interesting stories. We felt it was worth the price of $8.00.

This is a must see for any lover of auto memorabilia especially old cars and licence plates! I've never seen so many nearly complete plate collections in one place, from the early years to mid-century or later.
