Just returned from our first, and definitely not our last visit. Besides the lovingly restored cars, planes, and two-wheelers, the human interest stories about many of the items makes this a very special museum. Highly recommended.

I had no idea how amazing this place is. We spent two or three hours, but it wasn't enough. I want to go back. The variety of cars, motorcycles, and airplanes is outstanding.

Beautiful collection of cars, even if you aren't a car fan. They are so well preserved and presented. You won't see these things at a typical auto show. Also planes and bikes. Not far from Rockland.
