Charla is right-- what an amazing hidden gem! I didn't know it was there-- tucked away in an industrial plaza [because it needed a hangar sized space] without drawing attention to itself--- here is this little gem that you probably won't know about until you've...More

Had a great time for an adult birthday party. The cars are beautiful and you can get close up and really check them out. Food was good too. It is not open to the public as a museum. Only rented out for events.

The public-- it's an event center, not a place for tours. The gentleman who was working there showed us around the absolutely fabulous radio collection and gave us a peek at the antique cars in the back....he was most gracious. It was still worth the...More

Tucked away on a small street between industrial buildings is this unassuming building. As soon as you enter the amazement begins. The long foyer is filled with countless antique radios, bar set-ups, vintage phones, and other treasures from the 1920-50's. Then you enter the main...More

My friends held their wedding reception here. From the outside, it looks like part of an industrial park, but inside, it's an amazing museum of antique radios and vintage cars!! It was a beautiful reception with plenty of antique eye candy!
