We've driven past this museum a number of times and on a rainy afternoon we decided to visit. This is a very large collection of both antique and vintage race cars. Many of the antique cars have been featured in movies and are in remarkable condition. The tour is self guided so you can go at your own pace. There... More

We visited during that real hot spell & the A/C wasn't keeping up with the heat. This attraction is for old car buffs. The Memory Lane title lead some in our party to think there would be more than that but that's it! Cars from early 1900's on. Some other memorabilia but not much. Bicycles, etc.

I brought my 83 year old Dad here today since he loves anything to do with old cars. I think the $10 a person is pricey but we paid it. The temperature in the bike shop in the front was very comfortable. However, the minute we opened the door into the museum section, the temperature rise what felt to be... More

My 91 year old parents thoroughly enjoyed the museum. They actually remembered riding in or driving many of the classics on display! It would be nice to have a little more room to move around each of the vehicles - they are really parked quite tightly.

The staff were helpful and the variety of old cars and bikes were quite extensive. Spent time just browsing, and it is surprising how time flies. Difficult to pick a favourite so do have a look.

We read about this museum before we went to the area and we were not disappointed. The next time we are in the area we will visit again. If you are in the area, your time there will not be wasted.

I thought it would be mainly classic cars, but let's face it, we are in racing country here in NC. There is a lot of racing cars from times gone by, but there is a mix of class cars. Not overly crowded, it does get a bit warm in there as it is in a metal building behind a bike... More

I enjoyed it, yet very cramped the displays are so close together you really lose sight of each different display
