More Than Just Antique Cars

From Ringling the Beatles cars. We enjoyed walking thru an eclectic collection. Cars ranged from fully restored to restoration in progress. This made for an interesting afternoon.

A friend who is a car buff wanted to go. It was o.k., but not compelling. If you are a car person and have a need for a fix, this won't do it.

We enjoyed every moment in this museum. Loved seeing all the cars from our past. It was a joy to see how well they are cared for. It is clear that this museum has really got a unique collection.

Glad we took 2 hours to visit and look at the musuem, lots of nice old cars we would love to own. They have a nice variety of custom and antique cars.

Cars are not as stunning as might be seen elsewhere (for example, the annual Concours at Amelia island) but there are a few curiosities such as prototypes of vehicles that my husband had never even heard of, and several cars in a completely natural "found" state ( no restoration whatsoever).

They have cars, and a few motorcycles, bikes, old video games....but the place was not 'spic and span' as other places. In fact parts of the museum hasn't seen a dust rag in many months (years?).

My husband is a car nut so I brought a book and told him to take his time in the museum. He was back in a half hour. He said it was a very limited selection of cars and nothing he hadn't seen before. It's located right across from Ringling and since you need so little time to see the... More
