The Horseless Carriage Museum is a treat! The vintage cars and bicycles are in immaculate condition, as are the array of antique music boxes, gramophones, knitting machines, cash registers and pieces too many to name. A collection like this has to be seen! Our host, Richard, is the genius behind the acquisitions and restorations. He knew the history of each piece and tied them all together in an engaging talk. An afternoon with him is like looking through history.

My daughter suggested that she wanted to go through and see what's all in there. Well one rainy day came and off we went, It was an interesting tour and a lot of neat information about who did what and some of the where as well. We ended wandering off ourselves and respectfully went and took our time investigating just about any and everything we could. She was amazed and well so was I. Something you should check out.

Enjoyed afternoon tea on the gallery and really enjoyed the piano playing which we found out later, when we actually started our tour of the numerous rooms and exhibits, was done by an elderly lady. The music seemed to follow us throughout the building. the building when viewed from the outside is misleading and when we finished our tour we agreed that it was quite amazing as to the use of the space inside and the number of exhibits.
