the automobile.

through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and is closed on
Monday, Tuesday, and major holidays.

Automobile History. While other fine collections display cars, this
museum presents the entire world around the car: its humor, its
tragedies, its greatest successes, and its obscure failures. If it
