Robert M, Thanks for taking the time to review The Museum of American Speed. We want to point out that although we are a world class automotive museum we also have a lot to offer to the non-gearheads that may visit. We have a fantastic pedal car collection, many music related items, bronze artworks, movie posters and much much more.... More

What a gem for the city of Lincoln. Has a little bit for everyone, but if you are a gearhead, it is amazing. History galore.

The museum has some very nice items on display. My overall rating is average, because of our tour guide was not very accommodating for allowing us time to looks at several of the display. It seemed his was more interested in getting to the end so he could go on break. We finished the tour 30 minutes before the other... More

This museum is one of a kind. Your staff were kind enough to let us tour before regular hours so that we could continue our travel. The quality and unique collection of engines and pedal cars is first class. I highly recommend anyone to stop and tour your facility. Thanks for a great time.

This is truly a world class automotive museum. For anyone the least bit interested in things automotive, it is a "don't miss." The variety is impressive: Indy cars, stock cars, classic cars, sprint cars, and more. There is even a whole floor devoted to pedal cars and models. The displays are very professionally realized. My favorite is the museum's interpretation... More

My wife were doing a road trip from AZ, Northern Idaho, Montana South Dakota and into Nebraska. Being that were both gearheads, we try to stop at any/all auto museums along the way. For me growing up in SoCal and seeing cars and history that I remembered on display was perfect. A great stop on the way back to AZ.
