VOLO – The Volo Auto Museum has been named No. 1 in the family trip/excursion category of Suburban Family Magazine’s 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards. 

“This was no easy feat, as ballots appeared over a four-month period in both Suburban Family Magazine and on our website,,” Publisher Jim Wolf wrote in a letter to the museum from the Westmont-based magazine. “Winners are being announced in our January and February 2014 issue, which is currently on the street and at our website.” 

The Volo Auto Museum, 27582 Volo Village Road, Volo, features hundreds of classic, antique, muscle and Hollywood cars.

“This is a great honor,” Museum Director Brian Grams said of the award. “The runners up were the Illinois Railway Museum, Brookfield Zoo, the Mid-Continent Railway Museum [North Freedom, Wis.], the Morton Arboretum, Blackberry Farms of Aurora, and Starved Rock State Park. So that’s some pretty impressive company.”
