You will find this complete auto museum exceeds your expectations for a small southern town. It will take you back to the drive-in movies days with the post with voice box to give details on each auto on exhibit. Other period relics are on display. A revolving themed-display is something to Google.

Most awesome car museum ever seen. Worth the trip. Over 100 cars from the beginning of cars to now. Can't wait to bring grand kids to see

The staff at the Tupelo Automobile Museum welcomed us and gave us a good overview of the collection. The cars are arranged in chronological order, with good labeling and history of the cars. The lighting is good, and the cars are spaced so you can get a good look at each one. We especially liked the Richard Petty and Elvis... More

I could have driven off in a load of these cars. Coming from England, these cars are just so different from what we are used to. the 50's cars are so big, colourful and ostentatious. We loved it.

While passing through Tupelo last week, we happened to see an ad for the Tupelo Auto Museum. We were delighted that we took the time to tour this fabulous collection of rare automobiles. The museum is located near the Civic Center and just a short walk from downtown. They allow no flash photos and the listening boxes at each vehicle... More

Yesterday we visited the Tupelo Automobile Museum with the Memphis Miata Club. Tupelo is about an hour and a half drive from Memphis on the freeway. The collection is vast! And there are audio boxes to help explain individual exhibits. Allow plenty of time. There are benches here and there to rest (for those of us who can't stand for... More

For $10, I enjoyed touring this car museum. It took about an hour. If you want, there are audio descriptions of each car. I just didn't care to invest that kind of time. They have some of the earliest models of automobiles from the 1800s. When I first pulled into the parking lot, my heart sank because I didn't see... More

The museum had many old and rare cars. Each vehicle has a "listening station" to hear facts about the auto. Admission is $10. Great for car guys/gals.

The museum is laid out in a large building and allows for a lot of space to view the cars. There is a nice collection of cars from antique to some modern. Great place for car enthusiasts
