What an awesome collection of cars. Take your time...plan at least 90 minutes or more. We have visited a lot of car shows, museums, etc as my hubby is a car lover! This place will not disappoint. There are a lot of cars we had not seen before. You may even have a chance to speak to the collector himself.... More

The museum is closed permanently. See picture. I have no choice but to add a "1 star" since we could not gain access. This is not the only business closing in Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area.

This is a nice place to check out some of the history of cars in america. There were several models to look at, obviously being in a museum they were all show quality. The price of entry was very good. I would return to walk through this museum again.

If you like looking at older model cars and cars once belonged to famous people. Little dusty in the building.

Well that was a waste of money! Been here before and thought it was just okay, it was raining and thought we would drop in again and give it another chance. Seriously I have seen nicer and rarer cars at the local cruise in. The place is dark, the cars are just ok and the dude at the front desk... More

Hadn't been here for a long time. Looks like they change the car selection occasionally. Many of the cars have been in movies or on TV shows so it takes you back to some of the shows you remembered long ago. Worth the visit.
