Our family has some real car lovers and when we saw the museum and had to go! My son was in awe but my husband thought there was a very limited selection based on each era. We thought it good but not great.

We have gone here several times in earlier years when our kids were little. They LOVED this place and we were sad to see it closed this year when we visited Wells. If you happen to be there one of the weekends it is open, it is definitely worth the time to explore, and it is an exploration! Lots of... More

I have visited the museum many times with my Grandson. We really enjoyed the visits which were at least once a season. Unfortunately, the museum closed without any explanation.

We were so disappointed to arrive and the place was boarded up. We are from Florida and told it was a must stop if in the area. Asked a local and said it had been closed for a long time. Not a lot of places up this way to see old cars was looking forward to the visit.

The collection is quite extensive. It's not fancy on the inside or out but the cars are marvelous. They even have a Delorian. Cool for the kids to see the back to the Future car before it was souped up ;-)

this museum was open one weekend in July, August, September. It should not be shwing up on travel sites. it's a shame, because in the past it was a great museum.
