Trying to find things to do in Orlando that wasn't theme parks or mini golf and interested Mik, we found the Orlando Auto Museum. Mik still wasn't sure if he wanted to go, but after Dad and I accidentally ended up at Dezerland to play mini golf in the same complex (an old mall mostly now occupied by the auto museum) and saw a QR code for 25% off the auto museum, we were able to convince him to go later in our trip.
The museum starts with rooms by the decades ('20s, '30s, and '40s).
The '40s room was actually boats. Mik really liked the models and this room is a good example of how many of the rooms had things on display on the walls that were relevant to the room's theme.
One of the most unique cars on display was the longest limo.
There were several rooms of cars from different countries. This rooms did not really interest us mainly because there was very little signage telling you anything about them.
Mik enjoyed the Bat Cave room with the Batman vehicles.
Our favorite area was probably the Cars of the Stars as it contained vehicles from various movies. My favorite was Inspector Gadget.
Mik liked the Spider-man one.
But his favorite was probably the Indiana Jones display.
The other room Mik really enjoyed was the Military Pavilion, especially since he had worn his camo that day.
The Bond Museum was also impressive with vehicles organized chronologically by movie. There was also an area with a lot of different memorabilia related to Bond.
Overall the Orlando Auto Museum was an enjoyable experience and easy to roll through. There were definitely a lot of different vehicles to look at and we easily spent several hours going through it. However, I really did not like that there was very little signage to tell you anything about the vehicles. It felt like there was just as much signage by the few vehicles they have on display in the areas outside the museum, which Dad and I walked around after mini golfing there a few days before, as there is in the museum where there is a lot more on display.
