The Stahl collection contains decades of gas pumps along with porcelain steel and neon signs from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. Step back in time in a full-size diorama of a Big Boy restaurant where you can sit in a booth or at the counter and listen to the jukebox playing your favorite 50s hits!

    review rating 5  This is one of the best kept secrets in Michigan. A great collection of old cars and antique music players. The staff is very friendly and will demonstrate the players for you and answer any questions you may have. Admission is free, there is a donation box to help support the museum

    review rating 5  this was my first visit to stahls Automotive Museum. it was a very enjoyable visit. There are some very unique cars there glad I'm not on display at the Henry Ford Museum. In addition you can get closer to cars at stahls than you can at the Henry Ford a number of the cars have the window rolled down so you can clearly look in and see the interior's. In addition they have a wide collection of music boxes and mechanical Orchestra machines. In both the smaller front room and also large mechanical music machines in the large car showroom. I recommend this for people of all ages suitable for kids although the music machines in the large showroom can get a bit loud there are ear plugs available at the entrance desk. I was very impressed with the knowledge and courteousness all the volunteer docent who really went out of their way to make my visit more enjoyable period. I had a very good time and will return. I am told that they switch out the percentage of the cars on a quarterly basis
