Automobile Driving Museum: The ADM collection of more than 130 vehicles is broad and diverse; it includes cars from the earliest days of vehicles through examples of muscle cars. The collection includes cars owned by such celebrities as Howard Hughes, Jean Peters and Eleanor Roosevelt.

We feature an historical line up of cars and marques from the 20’s and 30’s, many of which are no longer produced, such as the Packard, Durant and Saxon.

Our fleet is fueled and ready to go! Each Sunday we select three cars to provide rides for our guests. You can get up close and personal with our cars, and our dedicated and informed docents are available for tours to learn more.
