This is truly a trip down memory lane for the NASCAR fan. It has a collection of cars used in movies, too. There is a John Deere area, pedal cars, toys, and many more racing memorabilia. It is great for us older kids.

two of us visited here on 2/2/19. A $10/ea entry fee but well worth it. For us older kids lots of memories and for the younger generation how racing has progressed. I'm a disabled veteran and appreciated the wheel chair they offered so I could get around.

This car museum features much more then cars. We enjoyed the pictorial journey depicting NASAR drivers and car history/stories. It was really cool to recognize some of the cars which were used in some very popular movies. The store at the entrance was packed with amazing reasonable priced memorabilia.

We've driven past this museum a number of times and on a rainy afternoon we decided to visit. This is a very large collection of both antique and vintage race cars. Many of the antique cars have been featured in movies and are in remarkable condition. The tour is self guided so you can go at your own pace. There... More

We visited during that real hot spell & the A/C wasn't keeping up with the heat. This attraction is for old car buffs. The Memory Lane title lead some in our party to think there would be more than that but that's it! Cars from early 1900's on. Some other memorabilia but not much. Bicycles, etc.

I brought my 83 year old Dad here today since he loves anything to do with old cars. I think the $10 a person is pricey but we paid it. The temperature in the bike shop in the front was very comfortable. However, the minute we opened the door into the museum section, the temperature rise what felt to be... More

My 91 year old parents thoroughly enjoyed the museum. They actually remembered riding in or driving many of the classics on display! It would be nice to have a little more room to move around each of the vehicles - they are really parked quite tightly.
