  • Outstanding museum like no other on the east coast. Make the effort to visit and plan on 2 hours even with your wife!
  • Very friendly people. I sure don't know much about old cars, and didn't really care for them before going, but they really were fascinating and interesting to look and learn about.
  • A lot bigger than it looks from the outside. Good way to kill an hour. Cheap admission. Friendly staff. Lego and coloring table for kids who loose interest in the old cars. Beautiful old cars. By the way, Seal Cove Road from Southwest Harbor is mostly gravel. You might want to take the long way around.
  • The first thing in the door we were welcomed by a wonderful lady. She gave a quick verbal overview of the museum and welcomed us. The collection is very nice. The gift shop had very reasonably priced items. I would recommend this as part of your Acadia visit.
  • Off the beaten path but so worth going! Great auto museum!
