I visited the museum with a group of Urban Sketchers. The museum is quite small and so only 5 cars were on display. But those 5 were pretty special! Two art cars and three gorgeous classics, including a 110 year old Bianchi that survived 2...More

Take a look at what happens when ingenuity serves humor. The creativity alone will bring a smile to your face, and you might just come up with an idea for your own parade entry...

Since I left, the incredible Art Car Parade now has a permanent home. Don't miss this Museum if you can't be there during the Parade. These are NOT really cars; they are fantastical, whimsical art pieces.

Donations accepted, no entrance fee. Just a few cars and some artwork but everything is amazing. Very nice folks working there and you can definitely feel their love for the car art culture.

This is a very small museum. However, it packs in a lot of personality and captures the quirky nature of the annual art car parade. I highly recommend taking the time to visit, particularly if you are not in town to see the parade.
