While I am not a huge car/racing enthusiast, but husband is. I found the museum interesting from the perspective of seeing the progression of car/racing throughout history. Pretty cool to get to see these cars up close & personal.

I've driven by this place many times. Finally, I brought my grandsons. We all enjoyed the museum and the garage tour by Don! Wow, that was awesome.

This was a great museum with lots of vintage cars and history also. We enjoyed the drag racing cars and gift shop but we really liked the older cars. There was other old antique things there too, like signs, gas pumps, type writer, etc...
