Spent about 30 minutes wandering around this museum, found it interesting for something different to do and even brought back a few memories. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

There was plenty to see and do at this place. Kids enjoyed the place for the most part, some of the museum was a little uninteresting for them.

This collection of gorgeous old cars and a few classic planes is worth a visit. The Dusenberg and all the Packards are a particular highlight. The cafe is great and has wonderful home cooked food in a retro setting. Fantastic views.
