This is a up scale car museum covering all years of cars from the horseless carriage to modern times. Don't miss the 50's diner and the shell garage.

Gilmore Car Museum is an excellent place to visit for anybody interested in automotive history. There is a diverse collection of cars that are well displayed. We allotted about 5 hours but could have easily spent the whole day.

This museum is off the charts wonderful. The variety of cars is amazing, the campus itself is so clean and the people are very friendly. There's so much to see plan on at least a half a day. The diners also serves really good food.
