Mike & Linda; Thank you for your great 5-Star review. We kinda like that 1969 Z-28 ourselves! :) I'm sorry I couldn't spend more time with you, as I was trapped in my office desperately trying to get a transport co. to pick up a car before Thanksgiving.

We found details of a small car museum about 40 minutes from Orlando in a place called Mount Dora so decided to pay a visit to the Museum of Speed. However, after paying our $15 each admission fee, we were told we could not take big bags in, nor could my husband take his big camera. This was a bit... More

Thank you 'travllop' for your Top Review. We are glad you enjoyed the Museum, in your journey from Canada. It's always a good idea to read the 'features' of a business on TA before visiting.

Although it's not a very big place, it is loaded from wall to wall and ceiling to floor. Look in the corners, look at the ceiling, everywhere you look there is something interesting to see. Old signs, televisions, caskets, dolls, much miscellaneous, and, of course, the cars. Many things have written signs providing background information about the items. The owners... More

We stopped by Saturday to the, Mount Dora's Museum of Speed. What a great time we had seeing this collection of cars, rock and roll memorabilia and other vintage nostalgic memorabilia meticulously displayed in a 7,000 square foot Art Deco building surrounded by huge shady oak trees.

I always look forward to visiting Kerry and Cynthia and the wonderful cars and displays here. I have been there at least six times in the last year. Wonderful, knowledgeable people and something new to see each visit. My favorite (1935 Airflow) keeps calling out to me!

Even better than expected. An obvious labor of love to pull together a place that goes well beyond displaying amazing cars, but brings back memories of how life was for anyone born 1930-1970's. Like stepping back in time. Loved hearing details about the various items from Kerry and reading the story boards. My husband and I were in town for... More

Mr. "NHtoFL": Interesting... the two gentlemen who were here, when you visited, were back for the 4th time! I think if you stop a moment to realize it's not 1962 anymore.
