“Must visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

An eclectic collection of cars, trucks fire equipment, military displays and railroad trains. A good representation of Maine and the Cole family history. Too much to name here just go and plan on spending a couple of hours.

“Fun for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Stopped by and ended up spending an entire afternoon, no regrets. Worth the price. My 60 year old father, my ten year old son, and myself (33 female) all found things we were interested in. We all loved the snow machine aisle, found it fascinating to see how they 'plowed' snow 100 years ago. Plenty of neat cars, war memorabilia, and pictures of train wrecks from around Maine. We would definitely go again next year. Pleasant and knowledgable staff.

“Great Historical Site for all forms of Land Transportation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This place was such a great surprise, every form of land transportation from bicycles to trains were on display. Especially liked the snow removal equipment, snowmobiles and old fire trucks. Brought back many memories from my childhood of the old fire houses and trucks. The displays of military equipment was great. Price of admission was so inexpensive as was the purchase of memorabilia. Would definitely recommend it for any family on vacation in the Bangor, ME area. AAA +
