The museum provided an interesting history of Lansing, viewed through the impact of R.E. Olds and Oldsmobile. There are many interesting items, including old steam engines and various iterations of the automobile engine. As one probably would expect, the cars are the centerpieces of the...More

For the price $7 for adults and $5 for Seniors, it is hard to find a better value. A great personal history of RE Olds plus lots of old Olds, REO trucks and one Diamond Reo. I would allow 1 hour to 1.5 hours for...More

If not familiar with RE Olds, watch the short film about him at the begining of the museum. All vechicles are in excellent condition. Enjoyed seeing the Vista Cruiser. Nice museum.

This museum tells Oldsmobile transportation history from 1870 forward. Gift shop had great books and you can rent this museum for a special event. Very interesting, informative and a must see in Lansing, Michigan.

We live in Florida near a town called Oldsmar that we really created by R. E. Olds so this was a very interesting visit. It tied that town to the man behind Oldsmobile. Take the time to visit. You not be disappointed.

A terrific way to spend a few hours if industrial history is your interest. We'll worth the admission of $7 . If you're a car buff or an engine fan this will be worth your time. Easy parking .

My 86 year old father was visiting from Florida, and we wanted to have a nice outing for him, but one without too much walking. The RE Olds Museum was perfect. Not only did the beautiful old cars on display thrill him, but the compact...More
