This is a great museum with many quality cars. Definitely a place to stop by and recollect on how automobiles were made back in the day and their unique features. Thanks for posting this and keep up the good work!

Just met the Dutch VW mob here in Dundalk on their tour. Wonderful people. I used to live in the Netherlands for a while and it was wonderful to meet them here in their wonderfully turned out VWs. Will absolutely call to the museum when I am back down south again.
