I've been to several auto museums (BMW in Munich, Peterson in LA) and this is up there with the best if you're looking for early cars and companies. Although this is also a museum for airplanes, the thrust of the exhibit is autos. I had no idea how many car companies formed in the early 20th century. Of the over... More

No matter when I visit, there is always something to see and get excited about. Exhibits change periodically and help to learn history in a friendly way. Membership in this museum provides unlimited free visits for me plus extra visits for a friend or family member. Whenever I go, I stay for at least half a day to see exhibits,... More

The tour included all of the cars, an outside demonstration of an antique electric car, some interesting airplanes, information regarding the carousel, garments and other interesting... More

We decided to create our own Cleveland adventure on a damp Sunday which also happened to be the 14th birthday of my step son. He loves cars so we decided to explore the car exhibit. We all had a great time learning about Cleveland's automotive past and seeing the great interior of a gorgeous home. Despite the fact that he... More

Western Reserve Historical Society has its own parking lot which is a big plus in Cleveland. The Crawford is within the main building and parts of the exhibit are still under construction, but the vehicle portion is complete. The written portion of each exhibit was informative even to a non-vehicle person like myself and included fun facts on most vehicles.... More
