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 .

You will need about 1:30 to view the exhibits and spend a little time reading signs. Lots of original vehicles. Might not hold youngsters attention as long as adults.

This museum does s great job on looking into the life of RE Olds. They have a great selection of cars and many of his personal items. I would recommend a visit as he was a major part of automobile history.

This is a surprisingly good gem in touring Lansing if you are interested in the history of Oldsmobile (or the car industry as a whole) and some spectacular samples of vintage cars back to the 1800s as well as more modern vehicles. Well worth the...More
