We are America’s Signature Collection!

On a 90-acre historic campus midway between Detroit and Chicago is the Gilmore Car Museum. 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. Grandparents share stories about a ’57 Chevy, as their smiles are reflected in the car’s chrome. Stroll the campus. Eat lunch in our authentic Blue Moon Diner. Walk right up to an amazing collection of over 300 vintage automobiles, motorcycles, and memories. It’s the ultimate experience for everyone in your family.

Did you know we have 7 onsite partner museums?

Our featured partner this month is the Classic Car Club of America Museum. The CCCA Museum was dedicated in 1987, when its Thomas W. Barrett Barn was opened to the public. Representing the pinnacle of engineering, styling and design for their era, these cars—bearing nameplates such as Auburn, Duesenberg, Packard, Pierce-Arrow, Stuz, and many others—were built between 1925 and 1948, typically in limited production numbers.
