Whilst my wife and her friends went off to the market that they didn't find, I went to the car museum. I have been to many and although the entrance fee seemed a lot it was worth it. So much to see and would actually go again

Wearable Art was displayed extremely well and very impressive, outstanding talent. Q with info was also good. Also a great range of Classic Cars and make sure you also see the cars in the rear building as well. Well worth a visit.

Enjoyed the Wearable Arts portion and thought it well presented and worth a visit. Felt the entry price a bit pricey though ($24 for both).

If you are into cars, this place is for you. This is the car collection of one man - hundreds of cars - all types. From Cadillacs, Packards and Cords from the 1920's-1930's to Ferraris and Aston Martins from the 1990's-2000's. There is even one of Elvis Presley's Cadillacs on display. I spent over two hours in the museum and only saw 1/3 of the car collection - the other 2/3 is located in an adjacent building! Oh yes, and there is a clothing museum as well. This is small and does contain some rather uniquely designed items of clothing - more like costumes.

What a clever idea to combine two very different things in one museum. I would ordinarily give anything involving cars a wide berth, but the collection was staggering and I enjoyed these almost as much as the wearable art (which was fabulous). Not exactly a bargain (at $24 per adult), but definitely worth a visit if your budget allows.
