Overview
More
The mirrored walls of the Tallahassee Automobile Museum enclose more than just automobiles! This 100,000 sf. facility houses cars, trucks and memorabilia of all kinds. In addition to the antique cars, muscle cars, concept cars, and trucks -- check out the eclectic collection of Steinway pianos, Remington sculptures, Case knives, Barbie dolls, boats, boat motors, children's pedal cars, and die-cast toys. Journey through history with Native American artifacts, firearms, antique cash registers, pocket watches, salt-cellars, baby bottles, silver spoons, baseball cards, antique golf balls and clubs, 100-year-old brass-bladed fans, art objects from Thailand, neon signs, stained glass, a horse from a carousel, a children's barber chair shaped like an airplane and much, much more. Part shrine, part history lesson, part pack-rat's paradise, part garage and part art gallery -- except, in this case, the art has four spotless wheels and can go from 0 to 60 faster than a Cezanne can. It's truly an amazing museum of American history.

Not only can you see restored cars, tons of antiques they also sale knives (Hunting, pocket and collectibles). Huge variety of case pocket knifes.

I went here with a class from school that was mandatory. I wish I had gone sooner. It is soooo much more than a car museum. It is a great jesture that the owner shares his collections with the public.

This is not a museum. It is one very-rich-man's personal horde. And part of that horde is a collection of Ku Klux Klan memorabilia and some racially demeaning mannequins. There is nothing in the way of educational information about any of the many groupings of...More

Well worth the visit. The museum is known for its classic cars but the collection includes outboard engines, knives, music, boats, kids cars, baseball, golf etc. Entry was $15 with free parking. This is a private collection of antiques
