Visitor Tips and News About Volo Auto Museum
The Volo Auto Museum has a mix of authentic prop cars and antique autos. The antiqu autos are available for purchase, the props are for display only.[Bill Weisner, 04/01/2013]
Great museum with a collection that spans 4 buildings and a multi building/level antique mall. Surprisingly, most cars are for sale, so you can "what if" to your heart's content.
