Question Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum a good visit?

I have always been fascinated by microcars, since they try to do a lot with a little and have been considering a road trip to the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum once building season ends here. Has anybody been there and could you say if it's worth it? Also, if anyone has suggestions for things to see on the way from VT to GA I'd appreciate them. Trying to justify the trip to myself. Thanks a lot.

If you like microcars it should certainly be worth seeing. Cool thing about a microcar museum, you can store more small cars in a given space than large cars.

I've never been there, but I have visited Harrah's old collection in Reno, Imperial Palace collection in Vegas -- with a room full of Dusenbergs, Tom Mix's Cord, one of the four remaining Pierce Silver Arrows, and Mussolini's girlfriend's Alfa. Also been to Pioneer Village in Minden, Nebr. I enjoyed all of these, so I bet you will probably enjoy the Microcar Museum.

Steal me one of these, it was like the Smart Car of the early 70s, with the exception that I actually want one...

Didn't I see one of those on an episode of Junkyard Wars (the UK one)? Hmmm...maybe not. Don't recall that canopy, so it may have been a different car. For me it's the Heinkel Kabine.
