A wide variety of hot rods, muscle cars, Hollywood vehicles, exotics, vehicles used by heads of state, motorcycles, and even a "Popemobile" are housed in the Vault.
Tours will last over an hour and photography is not permitted. Temperatures in the vault can be low, so if you get cold easily, warmer layers are recommended.
