Our experience at the Gilmore Car Museum began with the Wednesday Night Cruise-In at the Blue Moon Diner. We enjoyed some good eats as we mixed with the locals. The next day we toured the museum but hadn't allowed ourselves enough time to see everything. The website indicates to allow three hours but that was no where near enough time to experience all of the exhibits. Here you will not only see fully restored examples of antique automobiles but also enjoy learning some of the history of the industry as a whole. We were particularly amazed by the collection of hood ornaments.
