As stated in other reviews this was mostly a history of the BMW. The introductory video was poorly done and they had a hard time even getting the film started. In our opinion it was not worth a visit.

The museum's current feature was cars of the 50's - my husbands favorite. There were enough cars on display so as not to overwhelm.

This museum was smaller than we anticipated but it was well done. The first floor is 1950s and the top floor has a variety of cars. They don’t cover any side stories of cars like gas stations, travel, etc. all the focus is on the...More

Wasn't there personally, but a woman in our Bed & Breakfast said she enjoyed it even though she has little interest in cars and went for her husband. She said it was interesting to see and I'm sorry I didn't get there this trip.

We stumbled on this museum on our way to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and happy we did. We loved seeing all the old cars and the Batmobile was on display which was a special treat. It was a fun experience.
