  • The museum was permanently closed on March 31, 2019. One of my reasons for visiting Tupelo was this Museum. I was told by the Tupelo Visitor Center that it had closed, the day before I arrived.  more »
  • I finally got here on the closing weekend. I hate that it's closing. Try to come by March 31, or catch the April auction.  more »

  • This place is great. It is a fun place and amazing to see all the automobiles together. I'm sad to see the collection get split up. My family all enjoyed this place... Ages 18-12. It was also cool with the Elvis car and section of movie posters that he started in. It close March 31st...Go if you can... You won't be disappointed.
  • The collection was incredible with many rare vehicles from the 1800's and early 1900's If you have time in March go see it. My wife and I were driving through, saw a sign and stopped - So glad we did. What was even more special was Ms. Spain taking the time to visit with us and share her dreams of using the auction proceeds. Thank you.
  • A really great place to visit. Unfortunately the museum will be closing for good at the end of March 2019. I recommend going if you can.
  • Spent a lovely morning there today while the family went to Elvis’s Birth place. My 7 year old Car nut and I had a wonderful wander around. It is a clean and well setup museum with a little electronic box at each car to hear a small snippet about it, just enough info. Cars have some good patina for their age and some fully restored but great to see some in clean as driven condition. Highly recommended if you enjoy cars to pop in.
  • The most BEAUTIFUL antique cars and trucks, but sadly they are now closed for good! :(
