My son and my nephew love this place. We went there because of the Lighting McQueen. There is an activity room for kids to play. It was amazing to see all the cars that were in the movies.

Huge range of cars to see from all different eras and manufactures. Great range of cars from movies. Expensive though really for what it is and what you get on standard tour. Vault was even more

Very nice museum, great cars, and has a kids playroom. The architecture is very interesting. However, Entry price is too high in my opinion.

We did not feel it was at an unsafe location. Pulled right into a clean, well maintained and well lit parking garage. We would definitely recommend a visit to the awesome museum.
