Founded by a partnership between benefactor Ken Behring and Don Williams that began in 1982, the Museum first opened its doors in August 1988.

One of the museum's most unusual features
Don Williams
is a 1924 Hispano-Suiza H6C with a body paneled with tulipwood.[4] Over the years, the museum has also housed a 1962 John F. Kennedy limousine and a Chinese Hongqi, the first Chinese made automobile to be imported to the United States.


Several changing exhibitions, representative of topics in transportation, culture and science as they relate to our society have been hosted in the various galleries and reception areas throughout the Museum.

Sit back and enjoy a guided tour as Don Williams and other museum representatives provide a personal presentation of numerous cars and gallery items.
