This free museum is a worthy stop when in the downtown area. There is a rotating group of cars on display, all uniquely and outlandishly decorated. The creativity and detail is truly special and you can get up close to see the cars, which gives...More

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.
