Some of the cars made my jaw drop. Stunning. Highlight was chatting to a lovely lady that was so knowledgeable about all the exhibits and learning so much, she made us feel like we were royalty showing us around, taking photos etc. It was only on leaving that we found she owned the place with her late husband. Thank you... More

I am not a car enthusiast but this is a great place to visit. The automobiles are beautiful and it's easy to browse the museum. My favorite was the gift shop. Huge selection of Mississippi artists featuring a wide variety of choices. Jewelry, pottery, kids stuff,etc.

We seen the sign for the auto museum and thought a break to get our and walk around would be great! We both love cars, especially old ones. A nice selection, tastefully done. You can take as long as you like to view. Some displays had extra info on the automobile if you pushed a button on the speaker.

Such a cool place to visit! It took me 45 minutes to see everything at a less-than-leisurely pace, but I could easily have spent hours here. I know nothing about cars, but the museum is set up so that you can visually follow the evolution of the automobile from the earliest models to modern racecars, which is awesome. There are... More

To sum it up simply, if you have any kind of automobile addiction, this is a place to see! Even for some gals like me who have turned a wrench, its a trip to a simpler world, but more maintenance needed! Lots of these cars had the meaning of "high maintenance!" On the other hand, the staff and I took... More

Very nice and friendly staff. The cars are arranged in chronological order, with audio details about almost all of the vehicles. Even if you are not a vintage car buff, you will enjoy a visit here.

Many rare vehicles. Good representation of year by year history of the motor vehicle industry. A great deal of time and money has gone into creating this display.

Wonderful car museum with some fascinating and very rare automobiles. Took a self-guided tour and listened to the informative recordings located at the front of most exhibits. Very much worth the visit.
