A very nice collection of REO and Oldsombile memorabilia. The cars are also very impressive. Cost is only $5.00 for seniors and well worth it. Parking is free and it is close to downtown are.

We visited here on a trip to Michigan. We were searching out history on the history of car manufacturing in this country. I thought this was a good museum. My kids enjoyed looking at all the cars. Good for kids older than 5.

What a very nicely done and interesting museum on the Oldsmobile and REO trucks, lawnmowers and more! The history of it all was great with personal items of the Olds Family. Worth the trip! Fun to see the " American Pickers" license plate too!
