“The history of the motor carriage”

Welcome to the Museum of Automobiles located atop beautiful Petit Jean Mountain in central Arkansas! The museum is home to the only Climber automobiles known to exist with the 1923 Climber Touring on display. Drop by and experience this unique part of Arkansas' automotive heritage! In addition to the Climber, there are more than 50 vehicles on display ranging from a 1904 Oldsmobile French Front to a 1967 Ford Ranchero. Most of the vehicles date to before 1950. Winthrop Rockefeller founded the Museum of Automobiles, opening on October 18th of 1964. Fans of the late Governor will be delighted to see his 1951 Cadillac that he drove to Arkansas in 1953 when he made the state his home; his 1914 Cretor's popcorn wagon; and his 1967 Cadillac with a sterling-silver Santa Gertrudis hood ornament.

They have many cars and all seem in top condition. Each car has a placard with historical information on the auto industry for the year the car was made plus details of the car itself. Nice museum. It’s $10 admission for adults before any discounts (senior, military, etc).

Very cool! Definitely a must see even though it's about 20 min from I-40. It's very open inside, and my kids enjoyed it, but you need to watch young kids because the cars sit on gravel. They also have some old, coin-operated machines that actually work and were really cool to play. The machines haven't been modified and so they take the original amount from 1¢ to 25¢ so bring your change.

I love cars and if you are too. Definitely see this place. Elvis’s ranchero, JFK personal car, and a DeLorean! And more cars from 1900-1981
