History


The Museum was established in 1996 by DeVoe Moore with the aim of sharing his love and passion for automobiles and other vehicles and began with a small collection of just 15 cars. The Museum grew in leaps and bounds and had to move to a larger facility in 2007, in which it is housed today. The main museum building spans 100,000 square feet and houses two floors of mostly American automobiles and an excellent collection of Americana.

Two newbanquet halls with state-of-the-art technology can be found on the ground floor of the Museum, while two additional conference/meeting rooms are available on the second floor of the Museum. Several other banquet rooms catering for a variety of group sizes are also available to hire. Photo:
