I love the Dwarf Car Museum! The workmanship that Ernie does is amazing. 2 Old guys with incredible vision & handmade building skills. That you can actually see the cars being made is super cool. I go there at least once a year, and it is a fun place to bring friends to.

People are friendly and ready to explain about the dwarf cars that are hand made. Has had people from over 25 countries view and happy that they came.

These handmade dwarf cars are amazing. The attention to detail amazed me. Ernie is a talented and interesting person. He will show a film about the making of his cars. The museum is run by donations.

Ernie is a very skilled individual that takes the time to personally explain how he manages to build these fabulous cars from scratch! Anyone that visits the Maricopa area should visit this facility. Well worth the time.

If you're in the area, this is a must-see. Ernie has been making scaled-down replicas of actual cars for a number of years (even racing some of them) and now has them on display out in the middle of the desert. All of these vehicles run and are licensed in the state of Arizona. One of the cars even had fresh bugs on the windshield from a drive this morning! Ernie loves to talk about his cars, even while working on them (yes, his shop is open to the public as well). Be sure to take your time, you don't want to miss anything.

Oh, and make sure your boys see the restroom ;-)
