We've been to this museum twice. Our last trip was in March, 2017. Both visits were a wonderful experience. The cars are beautifully restored. Many capture a forgotten part of automotive history. The first floor of cars focus on the early 20th century, with a special emphasis on cars made in Wisconsin. The second floor is an eclectic mix of... 更多
I was pleasantly surprised by this museum & the town. We spent a little over 2 hours looking at the cars. They do a good overview of Nash and Kissel automotive history. Each car has a description in front of it so you know what you are looking at & the original purchase price.
The museum was poorly lighted, many of the areas were quite dark. A nice collection of old cars that most people have never heard of. They also had a nice collection of signs, but of course some were reproduction s. I do not know what I have to pay to see made up stuff.

This museum is dedicated mainly to two unique auto manufacturers; Kissel and Nash. Numerous autos of both marques are on display along with a second floor of vehicles from other manufacturers. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.
Hartford's automotive past brought to light with the display of many Kissel cars that were manufactured here. Other noteworthy cars such as more modern racers are also on display.
We have been wanting to visit this museum for quite some time and finally made the trip. The car collection was amazing and is very interesting. The Lionel train display is wonderful. So much history in this building and the volunteers were very informative and welcoming. A must see for anyone who can appreciate vintage cars.
Really nice sized museum for an afternoon visit. We were looking for an afternoon indoor activity as temps in the 90s. could not have had a more enjoyable experience. Helpful staff and lots and lots of cars!!! if you are an auto buff lots of fun
I tended to get bored because my husband has a much greater interest in old cars than I have. They do have a big collection with many of the vehicles on loan from a private collection, so cars do change over time. The museum is located in the same building as the Schauer Center and inside the lobby two of... 更多
