On a 90-acre historic campus midway between Detroit and Chicago automotive history comes to life right before your eyes. Here at the Gilmore Car Museum, 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 400 vintage automobiles and motorcycles. It’s the ultimate experience for everyone, including the young and the young at heart.
