Didn't spend much time at Toad Hall; too COLD; late December. Neat cars that you don't see anymore. Didn't see any cats. Definitely worth the drive if you're on Cape Cod. I'd go again if I get to the Cape.

Hey, glad you enjoyed and come again. Cats were inside as too cold. But come in the Summer when we turn the heat on :-)

Never was a Museum, just a fun private collection. More fun up till 2002 when all were sorta on the road. We keep 'em running and someday some other folks will drive them off.
