Bring your wheels and makes some memories!

Wednesday Nights from 5-8pm

Wednesday Night Cruise-Ins at the Gilmore Car Museum are an annual summer tradition! It is FREE to bring your collector car on the grounds during the cruise-in and the event is open to the public. On good weather nights, the fun starts at 5 pm and runs until 8pm, with George & Sally’s authentic 1941 Blue Moon Diner serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and creamy old-fashioned custard throughout the evening.

With oldies music providing the soundtrack, these are evenings you and your family won’t forget! So, plan to bring your ride, snap a photo in front of the 1930s Shell station, cruise our amazing grounds, and enjoy an evening of great wheels and memories.
