Antique Automobile Museum
The Museum’s Antique Automobile Exhibit has more than 60 vehicles on display. The automobiles and trucks on view date from 1902 – 1962 and illustrate technological advances and engineering fetes that helped make cars accessible to the masses. Our collection also includes vintage gas pumps, oil cans, service manuals, and other automotive ephemera.
Our Antique Auto Exhibit Attendants are happy to answer any questions you might have and if you time your visit right we might just be offering Model T rides on the day of your visit.
The image gallery below is just a small preview of what you’ll experience at the Museum. In the future we’ll be adding brand new images of the entire car collection.
Awesome experience, no matter what age. Our toddler had the best day looking at the cars and riding the train again and again. I think the adults on our trip had as much fun as he did! Larry was amazing with the antique cars; he knew everything you could about the cars. It’s a lot of fun hearing from someone who knows and loves the cars as well as he does. Train ride was a lot of fun and memorable. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to visit again next year!
This place is bigger than it looks from the road! It’s a complete town of very nice buildings, vehicles, and exhibits. Very worthwhile to visit and take the train ride! Nice collection of antiques vehicles! Staff is super nice.
