Very well done little museum. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time here. So many vintage vehicles. What a wonderful way to see how the times have changed. We will definitely go back when we have out of state company.

The Penrose gets good ratings, and clearly deserves it! I learned an incredible amount of information about broughams, wagons, surreys, phaetons, coaches, etc. For example, I discovered that Brewster & Co. the builder of the best carriages in the U.S. was from my home state...More
