About
7 MILES FROM NEWPORT w/ ample FREE PARKING! Since 2017, the Newport Car Museum has welcomed tens of thousands of visitors from around the world. Located in a converted 3-acre building that once served as a missile manufacturing facility, the Newport Car Museum presents 85+ cars as art, displaying them in six galleries (and a Pop-Up Porsche Exhibit) that use theatrical lighting, specially commissioned large-format artwork and award-winning videos to tell the story of Ford/Shelby, Corvettes, World Cars, Fin Cars, Mopars and American Muscle Cars. Meticulously kept cars are displayed on low-rise platforms and turntables, with no barrier ropes, allowing for unobstructed 360-degree inspection, especially appreciated on “Hoods Up” Weekends held the second weekend of every month. Rounding out the experience are friendly, knowledgeable docents; a collection of Mid-Century modern furniture; and a cool gift shop with hundreds of eclectic items for all ages.

if you like old great cars this is a place you must go.
Jul 2021
a huge selection of vintage autos that shows the way cars were made when they were really made well. The museum itself is large and the price to enter is now really that bad when you think of all the work that goes into these cars and taking care of a nice place like this. Good Parking. Nice Staff. If you visit in the are you should go here. a great place for the entire family . not a restaurant. But it is a Gem

Thankful
Jun 2021
The museum is absolutely beautiful. It is bright and an artistic masterpiece. There is a wonderful feeling that you experience the moment you walk in the door. I first entered with a bit of hesitation because I was bringing my Dad who is currently having trouble walking due to serious back and leg issues. I inquired about the ability to rent a scooter. The gentleman quickly offered a complimentary wheelchair. It was perfect. They actually brought one out to our car outside. Three very handsome men helped us all with smiles on their faces. They were incredibly kind. Father's were also greeted with no fee to come to the museum on Father's Day! How amazing is that ?! On a day that the museum could possibly even have more men, they are gracious enough to make it a giving experience. I am very grateful and impressed.

What a collection!
May 2021
This museum was absolutely amazing if you like cars from the 1950s to today. It's got almost 100 luxury and racing cars from many different eras. So much fun walking through the collection. Definitely worth a short drive outside of Newport for a visit.

Absolutely Amazing!
Mar 2021
You have to bring your camera...the closest i'll ever come to vehicles of such class and distinction. Only stopped because nothing else was open (COVID) and was so glad I did! Every car is a rare gem and has a full explanation of its unique details. The staff was fantastic and I highly recommend this to any car enthusiast!
