WOW!!!!! This is just more than a car museum. The elaborate period displays to go along with the cars, hearken back to a time when we had an "authentic united American culture." From gas pumps (a collection on almost 1/2 million dollars), to older American cars, drive-ins, carnival games, older gas stations (where they really pumped your gas and checked your oil), and "period" wardrobe worn by mannicans throughout the museum make this a "must see" for nostalgia and memories for baby boomers. Currently playing on the radio I hear, Blake Sheldon's new song "I Lived It" and reflect how this museum is a visual display of the lyrics in the song.

On another topic, the curator, Ken, was so gracious to us. He gave us background on the cars on display, the museum, the owner, and spent almost 20 minutes with us as we toured the cars in the museum. What an excellent guide as you could see his passion for the museum shine through in every sentence that he shared with us.

There is no admission to this museum and the owner Bennett Motors donates the proceeds of those who contribute to his donation jar, to the charity that was selected to receive that month's donation. When you make a donation you are informed with a sign what organization will receive that month's donations.

When you are traveling either to, or passing through Evansville, IN, stop by the Dream Car museum. We toured the Toyota Plant in nearby Princeton, IN in the morning and the Dream Car museum in the afternoon. If you enjoy cars and the "car culture" try this trip for a little get way in Middle America.

I had driven by this location many times while in Evansville and never realized this museum was there behind the car dealership. Amazingly done. Fun, bright, educational even for the non-car fanatic – AND admission is free! Shawn, the young man who shared some stories of some of the car was very nice and you could tell he loved his job. I'd highly recommend this little gem of a museum and be sure to have someone tell you the stories behind some of the cars!

This museum is great! Lots of beautiful cars, and we only had time to visit one of their two buildings! The staff was very friendly. There were lots of things to see, many amazing cars and signs and other motor memorabilia! And it was FREE!!! Very interesting place!

Free museum with cards from all eras. We just learned that the exhibits rotate so we plan to go back in a few months to see what's new. What a wonderful way to enjoy a Saturday!

There were four of us; and we each saw something that was important to us in our past. The guides were careful to point out to us the things that would interest us as individuals. We were allowed to take photos while seated in a luxury vehicle (under supervision, of course). Truly worth seeing. What are you waiting for??
