A 4/5 might be a little generous. But for the price ($12) it was good. There is a write up next to each car which is very informative and interesting. The displays are well done. Some of the cars have appeared in movies (such as...More

Reasonable prices. Well laid out exhibitions with memorabilia as well as cars. Nice and chronological and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly which led to a very nice experience.

One of the best auto museums I have ever been to. It has plenty of old cars, street scenes, history, shops, etc.. It was very nice and it was the second time I visited. Well worth the couple of hours.
