“Perfect if you have a Passion for Speed!”

Founded in 1992 by “Speedy” Bill and Joyce Smith, the Smith Collection Museum of American Speed is dedicated to preserving, interpreting and displaying physical items significant in racing and automotive history. The federally recognized 501 (c) (3) museum currently encompasses more than 135,000 sq. ft. over three levels. The vast collection results from the Smiths’ personal involvement in racing and hot rodding for more than six decades, and their lifelong passion for collecting and preserving historic automotive artifacts. Millions of hours have been spent, as Bill puts it, “turning over rocks” and chasing countless leads to assemble a collection of this magnitude. As a result, museum visitors can witness a stunning array of history-making cars, engines, parts, toys and memorabilia. You’ll see countless rare and one-of-a-kind items, all presented in beautiful displays and dioramas that will make you feel like you’ve taken a step back into the past!

What an impressive collection! Everything from show cars like the Boothill Express to some of the coolest race cars from yesteryears. A must-see for any speed lover.

Check the hours on the website before you plan to visit!!! The hours listed in RT were not even close. We were looking forward to visiting on a short trip to town, but the museum was actually closed that day.
