“In the heart of southwest Michigan a truly remarkable experience in automotive history is waiting to be discovered—by you!”
Dreams of finding an “old car in a barn” are a daily reality here. Nestled on 90 landscaped acres in restored historic barns are over 200 extraordinary vehicles spanning more than 100 years of automotive heritage. Here you will find exhibits ranging from a 1899 Locomobile, to the classic Duesenberg or the elusive Tucker '48, and from the Model T to the muscle cars of the 60s and 70s.
We recommend that you allow at least 2.5 - 3 hours for your visit. You'll want to also allow extra time to visit the Miniature's Museum (no additional admission fee) and have a snack or lunch in our authentic 1941 Blue Moon Diner.
The NEWLY EXPANDED Gilmore Car Museum, located midway between Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Lansing and Battle Creek, Michigan - Just twenty minutes from either I-94 or US-131.
Whether you only have an hour to spend or the better part of a day you will certainly enjoy a remarkable experience here at the Gilmore Car Museum, considered one of the TOP FIVEcar museums in the nation. Cameras encouraged!
