The museum use to only have Ford automobiles but now contains many different types and years of vehicles. There are volunteers that will gladly tell you about the vehicles in the collection.

Lot of nice classic cars, nice clean museum. Not very large, but a lot of cars, old fashioned wagon-like vehicles, Back to the Future DeLorean, etc.
