This place is awesome from to start to finish! It has a piece of history for everyone age 12 To 100. It is incredible that one person has this much passion about history and the means to share it. Everything is well displayed and easy to digest and read. We met the owner Wayne Lensing, who is kind, humble and knowledgable. Thanks Wayne! The Fesers

This place was great!!! Totally worth the admission price, not just cars but all sorts of collectibles. Almost too much to take in. Worth the trip.

Not just for car lovers! Lots of historical and cultural displays, plus tons of excellent information. The "wax museum" side isn't the best, granted, but not the worst, either. It still gets five stars for neon so totally chock-full of fascinating stuff. We spent an hour there going through their enormous collection and we probably could have stayed longer to watch all the informational videos. Don't miss this!
