The cars are exceptionell: I love the Chevrolets and of course the famous Rickenbacher and the most famous Duesenberg .... The warplains are interesting, especially the very old Vampire.

A lot to watch and see - and afterwards go for a really good (strong) coffee to the cafe of the museum.

We went to the National Transportation and Toy Museum before this one and were a little overwhelmed by that experience. We almost didn't go to this one as we figured it would be more of the same. I'm glad we didn't as this was a much more satisfying experience. It is a smaller museum but everything is so well presented with a fascinating story attached to each exhibit. Smaller children or people that don't care about the backstory of the planes and cars will breeze through in 20 minutes but those that are interested in what they are looking at will truly appreciate this stunning collection.

Very good small selection of mainly American cars in superb condition, well displayed, accompanied by a few ex-military aircraft, with stories of individual Nz pilots and WWII aces. Loop video of latest Warbirds over Wanaka show. Interesting and worth a stop - especially with morning tea or lunch at the diner!

The name of the museum suggests more planes, but the focus of the collection was cars. Cars were great and well presented.

Hi Fiona, sorry if you felt mislead in your expectations of more planes. I'm glad you enjoyed our classic car collection though. Thank you for the review.
