We were not able to go in, as they were closed; however, they has some very interesting vehicles out side that made us want to visit. We will be stopping there on our return trip through Santa Rosa.

What a collection of restored cars from our, the baby boomers, past! Not only are the cars worth several photos, but most are also for sale! I'm sure they would deduct the $5 entrance fee if you were to purchase one or two! Also a great collection of vintage toys and auto memorabilia are there for your viewing. A must... More

Love looking at old cars. This is not a huge place, but definitely a good worth an hour of your time. The gift shop alone had some cool items.

Enjoyed walking thru and viewing the old cars. You can walk thru as quick or as slow as you'd like. Some of the vintage cars are for sale, so feel free to drive off into the sunset :) (after purchasing of course!)

This small, but interesting museum was filled with old toys, bicycles, engines, and cars in different stages of restoration. Some are for sale. There are also a few automobiles outside and a well-stocked gift shop with all things Route 66 at reasonable prices. We were there on the Friday of the 11th Annual Auto Show in Santa Rosa so there...

Great stop on Route 66 with all sorts of memorabilia that everyone can enjoy. After the museum we sat down and had a cold drink and a chat with the owner, it was most enjoyable and she gave us some good tips of other places to visit in town. Most enjoyable.

Worth looking at but nothing super exciting. There was a 33 & 34 Ford Coupe there which was the highlight.
