The museum was founded in 1977 and opened to the public in 1983. We’ve been growing ever since.  We’ve gone from one display building to five large buildings encompassing over 30,000 square feet.

Due to prohibitive heating and cooling costs, we are open six months each year.  During the six months we are closed to the public, work continues and space is made available for winter storage of vehicles whose owners want to keep them off the salty highways.
