This is probably the best private museum I’ve ever visited. Their collection of cars is truly impressive. I expected I’d enjoy it, I wasn’t expecting to be wowed.

Rockford's Only Car Museum and So Much More

As our name implies, we have a huge collection of cars. But the auto museum is just a small piece of our collection. We are definitely one of the most unique museums in the Rockford, Illinois region.

 

We serve as a history museum featuring attractions for Abraham Lincoln, John F Kennedy, and World War 2. We have one of the largest collection of presidential limousines you'll find in the world. Our museum also hosts collectibles from the likes of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and James Dean. For fans of things with big engines, our museum has Big Foot the Monster Truck, a stock car hall of fame, a Mario Andretti car, and a whole lot more.

 

With our exhibits featuring Hollywood artifacts from movies like Batman, Back to the Future, and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation there's something for movie buffs and kids alike. So when we say our museum is "so much more than cars" we really mean it. Click the link below to see our full list of 25 attractions, or better yet come pay us a visit!
