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.
We're active in the Old Car Hobby serving as the headquarters for the Mid-America Old Time Automobile Association (MOTAA). We also host several car shows and swap meets on the museum grounds annually. The best known of these is the MOTAA sponsored June car show and swap meet that is held June the week of Father's Day. Surprise dad and join us this June! In addition to strolling through the swap meet, explore the exhibits in the museum (we have more than just automobiles!), and browse our gift shop.
