Large collection of classic cars

Near SRQ airport and ringling bros museum. Good collection of cars in great shape. Tickets are a bit pricey look for coupons.

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

They have a few interesting cars but not much for the admission price. The car's aren't all real show pieces, the car dealership attached to the museum has almost as many cars.

It was a little confusing at the fact that travel brochures still listed the name as Bellm Cars & Music. However, staff was extremely friendly and they have a really nice collection of cars. They also recommended slipping into the place next door that also had more cars to see (free to visit, but this side was where one could... More

Pretty eclectic, sewing machines, cameras, boats, airplanes and cars. Saw some cars I'd never seen before. Very interesting assortment. I liked the prototypes and some of the very odd cars that were never even produced. Think it would be nicer if the area was bigger, cars were sort of squished together close in many areas. A little dark in there... More

If you really love old cars, and I mean old cars then this is pretty cool. Or you really love your husband and don't mind spending an hour or so watching him look at cars, he will love this place. It has loads of different cars boats and motorcycles but not so much that the average joe would need more... More

Interesting cars, lots on display, interesting to visit, friendly staff! Very cool personal cars from Beatles band members. Smaller museum, takes an hour to go though. Not a million dollar museum but pleasant none the less!

I enjoyed my visit to the Sarasota Classic Car Museum. Although the place is old bit run down, the cars are still worth the trip. Admission is reasonable; senior discounts. Some of the cars appear to be untouched, just as they were brought in, waiting for repair someday. A few had flat tires and parts missing. but I was able... More

Close to the Ringling & housing some of the best in classic cars An added bonus is the retail classic car establishment right next door where you can buy your dream The quality of the cars is right up there with those in Las Vegas.

Went here with my Dad and we had an amazing time. All the cars are well preserved and it was a lot of fun seeing all the old school cars.The staff was very friendly and informative. I will go back again when I can stay longer.
