onemocast, Thanks for the review and the recommendation to future guests. It's nice to see that someone that is not a race fan enjoyed their visit to our museum. We get a lot of people here in the museum that tell us that they enjoyed their visit even though they don't have an automotive back round. Thanks for responding to... More

Returning to Michigan from Bonneville, my friends and I stopped in at your museum. You have a beautiful building with amazing displays. I was very impressed. I look forward to visiting again when I'm in the area.

allen530, Thanks for the review. We enjoy Bonneville Week because we always get a lot of people with unique stories in that are either coming from or going to the Salt Flats. We have obtained a couple of new Bonneville cars over the summer that help tell the story even better. Thanks Again More

From the entry to the various rooms displaying an amazing collection, this museum is a GEM. It is a must see for all car buffs, particularly those into American Motorsports. The facility was clean and well kept; the staff friendly and helpful; and the tour guide very knowledgeable. The collection of racing cars rivals the Indianapolis Museum and the collection... More

938gerryp, Than you for taking the time to review us. We are a great destination for car buffs, but we have displays for almost everyone. It is a good idea to arrive right at noon so you can spend an entire hour roaming and taking it all in. If our guests choose to do so they can take the guided... More

This was the most varied and unique car museums I have ever seen. I went there thinking it was going to be a few cars and was blown away by the exhibits. I recommend it as a must see.

My sister and brother in law had discovered the museum a few years ago at a social event. My dad and brother and myself are car lovers, so we were anxious to see it ourselves. My dad passed away before he could make the trip, but my sister got me and my brother out there this summer. I guess overwhelming... More

been there 3 times. see something I missed, each time. my hips make me hurry towards the end so will take a wheel chair next time. I feel, the older visitors should have those cheap push carts you can set on, available. they will find out after a while, they will need one, if they want to keep looking...
