The Mount Dora Museum of Speed was located in Mount Dora, Florida in Lake County, Florida. Exhibits included American muscle cars, automobile memorabilia and an Americana collection.
Opened in 2001, the 7,000-square-foot showroom was both a dealer showroom for classic cars and a museum with changing exhibits. In addition to rare cars, displays included quarter midget race cars, pedal cars, a 1940s Texaco gas station, vintage road signs, juke boxes, Coca-Cola machines, gas pumps, neon signs, electric guitars autographed by rock musicians including Aerosmith, Jon Bon Jovi and Stevie Ray Vaughan, autographed television memorabilia and more.
The Orlando Sentinel described the museum as: "Housed in a replica Art Deco building, the attraction is an ode to antique Americana, from cars and musical instruments to signs and military artifacts."
The museum closed in November 2019, selling all exhibits, due to the owners retirement.

  • This is a must do... a fabulous experience. The owner is friendly and very knowledgeable. Very eclectic and fun.
  • Great museum with ALOT to look at! Needs a bigger space to see everything.
  • Nice, but small, auto collection with an interesting collection of objects not necessarily related to autos.
  • Don’t waste $15 to see only 15 cars. Also, all the funeral stuff is really creepy.
  • Back to the past!. Amazing memorabilia and beautiful cars.
