  • This place was really cool! My mom and I took my dad here for a belated birthday celebration, but we were surprised that all 3 of us thought it was cool! There was A LOT to look at! The "rooms" (they're actually enormous and more like full buildings) are absolutely packed with cars (I'd hate to be the one trying to park them.) We looked at the sports cars, celebrity and movie cars, and the exhibit right before the movie car room which might have been custom cars? There was a military exhibit we ran out of energy before we could check out. They have a second exhibit going that is Dinosaur themed, but that is extra and we really came for the cars. The cool thing is they say they change everything up every month, so you can come back and see something new another time! My only complaint was navigation. They gave us a map but it was REALLY hard to navigate around. We went out of order because we couldn't find the first section-the weird thing is that it's by the ticket window, no one said anything about how to get there when we paid. After you pay and get the bracelet (it has a chip which opens the gate to get into every section) you are supposed to continue to the little diner- when you walk THROUGH the diner there is a little movie room that explains how the museum works, and then there is a door that leads to the first exhibit. Other than 20 minutes spent trying to find that entrance it was really fun and worth checking out!
  • What a cool place! We really enjoyed everything there was to see. From the music, to the awesome cars, and dinosaurs. Drove 3 hours to check this place out. The 2 museums were very well maintained and very clean. Lots to go into to explore and see. Very kid friendly with familiar attractions to bring the whole family joy.
