    I’ve been meaning to go to the Volo Auto Museum for many years and finally got around to it. The first thing that struck me was what a big operation it is with all it’s buildings. They have a huge collection of cars and many other interesting things. Even kids will have a great time. The Duesenberg room is amazing! They have a restaurant too but the food appeared to be just frozen stuff that is re-heated and the staff was not very friendly. Don’t get me wrong; they weren’t nasty or anything but they had no enthusiasm and never even smiled even when I tried to joke with them. The reason I am only giving three stars is because of something that really surprised me. The paint work on their cars was incredibly poor. They look great from a distance but, when you get up close you see uneven painting, ripples, bubbles, runs and dings were just painted over without being repaired. I couldn’t believe it. If you don’t believe this, just look closely and at different angles to the light. $29.95 Earl Scheib jobs in the sixties were far better. That’s no exaggeration. Some of the cars looked like they had been done with spray cans of brushes The Duesenbergs were almost certainly done with much greater care but I didn’t go back to check after I started noticing the horrible paint work on the other cars. But my wife said she saw flaws in them too but I’m sure they were very minor. I wondered whether the terrible paint work might be just how they received the cars but they were obviously freshly painted and the incredible defects were consistent from car to car. It was unbelievable. I wouldn’t even think of buying one of their cars if they painted it. I’m afraid the paint might bubble up and fall off – which might be the best thing! I just couldn’t believe it. Look closely and you will see what I’m talking about. It’s a shame to have such shoddy work on such beautiful old cars.

    This is a great place to get out and visit! Even though it’s commonly known as a car museum, they have an antique shop, and some fascinating military artifacts and items used in war. They have many cool cars on display (Most are for sale) like Thunderbirds, Mustangs, Chevelles, you name it! Also, they have a big collection of cars from ones driven by celebrities, and famous movie and TV franchises! I really enjoyed coming here and I hope to visit again! Check it out!

    Have to see it to believe it!!! And truly a must see if you are ever in the area!This is a “fun for the whole family” attraction. An absolutely gorgeous car museum with some truly rare finds. The movie car collection is just plain fun. Top notch classics for sale at the dealership. Disney exhibits that had my kids going wild (also playgrounds to blow off that excess energy). A military vehicle and collectible museum. And to top it off, an antique mall that my wife naturally gravitated to (had to get a uHaul to carry things home).Pure fun and we will be coming back again and again and again…..

    I visited the Volo Auto Museum with my 3-year-old son and my mom! Not knowing what to expect beforehand, I can happily say that we were pleasantly surprised.What You Should Know: You’ll receive a map when you pay for your admission. Keep this! You’ll need it. When I think of a museum, it’s singular. One building. The vehicles at the Volo Auto Museum are housed in five separate buildings, well, six if you count the Military Museum. We visited recently (in the winter) so that meant keeping our coats on because you had to venture outside to enter the other buildings.The Volo Auto Museum is home to lots of vehicles used in popular movies: the DeLorean from Back to the Future, the Hearse from Terminator 3, “Grease Lightening” from the movie Grease, K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, and SO MANY MORE!There’s also plenty for kids to love with cars from their favorite movies: Herbie the Love Bug, Lightening McQueen and Tow Mater from Cars, the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine, the strange-looking vehicle from Cat in the Hat, and you can even take a picture in the Flinstone’s vehicle that was used in the movie starring John Goodman & Rosie O’Donnell! For a couple of quarters you can also take a spin in some of the kiddie cars on display in the kid’s building, Cars in Wonderland. On your way to the Cars in Wonderland exhibit, you’ll be greeted by scenes from two of my son’s favorite movies, Finding Nemo and Monster’s Inc.!The Volo Auto Museum is also an auto dealership! Hundreds of restored, classic cars are for sale. And for not being much of a car buff myself, even I wanted to buy one to take home!If you’re hungry, don’t forget to visit the whimsical Betty Boop Grill. Reminiscent of an old diner from the past, you can order up burgers, pizza, hot dogs and other seasonal items to chow down.There are plenty of opportunities here for a cute photo op too, so make sure you bring your cameras and a SMILE! I visited with my 3-year-old son in the winter, but I noticed several areas and playgrounds for kids to run around and play in warmer weather. We’ll be back in the spring for sure!Before you leave, make sure you visit the HUGE Antique Mall located right next door! Over 400 dealers sell their wares at the Antique Mall. Even if you’re not looking to buy, it’s definitely worth the visit.
