Visitor Tips and News About American Treasure Tour
The American Treasure Tour is a 90 minute trip through one man's collection of Americana. It covers as much ground as a Super Wal-Mart. The main collections appear to be Nickelodeons and other music machines (200+ on display; the tour guide plays many of them for the group), cars (I'm not a car gal, but the guide made them sound impressive), and animatronics (some cute, some super creepy) along with a peppering of random dolls, stuffed animals, circus signs, and other various ephemera. Half the tour takes place in the Nickelodeon Room, and the other half highlights the bulk of the collection via a tram ride.
It's like a mini House on the Rock.[Kim Newell, 03/24/2013]
