Visitor comments

      Came here today and was pleasantly surprised at how large the collection was and how well it was put together. A really great trip down memory lane... definitely recommend.


    5 star review  Blast from the past! What a wonderful experience to see brands through the ages! Loved the visit and everyone was really friendly and welcoming! Definitely worth a visit! They are opening a time tunnel in 2016 and I will definitely be back!
