• The Gilmore Car Museum's 50th Anniversary is captured in this special year-long featured exhibit highlighting Donald's original collector cars.

We are proud to be America’s Signature Collection

On a 90-acre historic campus midway between Detroit and Chicago is the Gilmore Car Museum, where automotive history comes to life right before your eyes. Here, visitors shoot the breeze in an old-fashioned gas station, children stand inches from a 1930 Rolls-Royce that’s from a Disney® movie, and grandparents reminisce about a ’57 Chevy that was the star of their yesteryear. Stroll the campus, eat lunch in our authentic Blue Moon Diner, and walk right up to an amazing collection of over 300 vintage automobiles and motorcycles. It’s the ultimate experience for everyone in your family, including the young and the young at heart.
