Volo Auto Museum, in Volo, Illinois, is an absolute dream for car lovers of all ages! Whether you’re an automobile expert or haven’t yet driven a car, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy in the vast collection. If you are knowledgeable about cars, you’ll enjoy getting an up close peek at all the amazing vehicles, and if you don’t know much, there’s lots of opportunity to learn!


The museum’s cars are housed in six separate buildings, so keep the map you receive when you pay admission, because you’ll need it to hit all the highlights! Their exhibits change throughout the year to keep guests wondering what’s next, but there are currently 33 exhibits, ranging from vintage classics and snowmobiles, to military vehicles and muscle cars! There are lots of famous cars from the movies too. You can see K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. 

There’s plenty for kids too! They’ll love seeing the Disney themed cars, and all their favorites from films including Herbie the Love Bug and The Flintstones. There are vintage animatronics and a Haunted Trolley tour to check out as well.

The museum is also home to an extensive antique mall and a diner. Have a great day exploring, and don't forget to follow our hashtag #outandaboutwithcompass on Instagram for more ideas to get you out and enjoying all Chicagoland has to offer this summer!
