We went to the museum on the same day that we toured the birthplace of Elvis. It is a huge building, featuring vehicles from 1899 to now, They were featuring Corvettes when we were there.
My husband is more of a car fan than I am, so I made a quick pass through and took a few pictures of the Duesenberg, Stanley Steamer, Tucker, Edsel, etc. Then I went to sit on a bench by the front while my husband finished. They were playing a video of how the museum came to be. You would be tempted to pass this by. DON"T. It is the fascinating
story of a Mr. Spain from Tupelo whose passion for antique cars led him to collect these into his private collection. As I understand it, there are even more cars lodged somewhere else. Mr. Spain passed away a few years ago, but the fascinating thing to me about the story was his part in building (literally) the tv station in Tupelo back in the 50's
