The Museum has an amazing Gift Shop – a seventh gallery if you will – with an eclectic assortment of findings for the car lover and the entire family.

Fun Facts

Car club visits are regular occurrences and are publicized so that visitors can coordinate and see some of their favorite marques in the giant parking lot, where parking is always free.

The second weekend of every month (occasionally rescheduled) is reserved for “Hoods Up” when every engine is revealed on every car. Visitors love seeing what makes the collection rock, rumble and roar.

You’ll be pleased to know the Museum has won tons of awards, including USA Today’s “Top 10 Best New Attraction” when it first opened in 2017 and in 2021 – four years later with a collection that has doubled in size – Tripadvisor’s “Top 10% of Attractions Worldwide” based on amazing reviews.
