It was definitely more finished this time. Parking could be more abundant and prices I think might be a little inflated but still a very cool place. It would be cool if they could find an old marathon car to be on display there to...More

We are so glad you enjoyed your trip with us. We do have a showroom of four marathon cars in the other building across the street. It is in 1305 Clinton street building.
Next time you come swing by and check them out!
This is a cool place to learn and see how antique cars were built many years ago on an assembly line. While there, be sure to visit the unique shops in the building and across the street. Also, there are a couple of antique cars...More

Shops in the center were average
Winery was nice and enjoyed the wine tasting

You're correct that the Marathon Village is closed on Saturday and Sunday and the Antique Archeology is open. There are many shops with interior entrances off the main hallway. I don't know for sure but I'm thinking that's what's closed. There are other shops with exterior entrances, Antique Archeology being one of them. Those individual shops have the ability to have different hours. Which ones? I don't know. There's no easy answer. You can google Marathon Village and go one-by-one down the list and click on each business for their hours. It seems Marathon Village needs to be more customer friendly.
