Here you'll find nearly 400 extrodinary cars and motorcyles from all eras, including exhibits ranging from vehicles of the 1890s to the classic Duesenberg, the elusive 1948 Tucker, to the cars of the 1950s, as well as Corvettes, Muscle cars and beyond.
To get the most out of your visit, we recommend that you allow at least 3 hours, and wear comfortable shoes - there's a lot to see! You'll also want to plan on a snack or lunch in our Cafe or authentic 1941 Blue Moon Diner. All buildings are wheelchair accessable with two upper levels accessed by large ramps. A limited number of wheelchairs are available from the Museum Store.
The Gilmore Car Museum is just twenty minutes from I-94 and US-131, located midway between Detroit and Chicago and a short drive Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids,
Battle Creek and Lansing, Michigan.
Whether you have only an hour to spend or the better part of the day you'll find the Gilmore Car Museum offers an Out of the Ordinary experience.
