Everyone had a great time. I highly recomend it. They have revolving displays so you could visit several times per year and see different themes. I would check their website for current theme.

I will start out by saying that I am not a car person. The building is lovely, but I would have liked to have seen some type of interactive display geared towards those of us who aren't interested in cars. The cars are very impressive......More
