Trip Planner: USA / Missouri / Springfield / Route 66 Car Museum
Sharing a passion with the public. Route 66 Car Museum is a privately owned car collection that is located along the famed and historic Route 66. Guy Mace started collecting in 1990 when he bought his first Jaguar. The collection has since grown to 75 automobiles that "strikes a fancy".By using our Springfield trip itinerary maker website, you can arrange your visit to Route 66 Car Museum and other attractions in Springfield.
Ranging from early brass era cars to vehicles used in cinema such as the Gotham Roadster, this collection is sure to have a vehicle for every museum goer's taste.
The museum houses seven Jaguars, two Rolls Royces, a 1963 Morgan owned by Desert Storm's General Norman Schwarzkopf, and the famous truck from the movie 'Grapes of Wrath' that starred Henry Fonda.
Several very unique classic cars are on display. Of note is the 1936 Horch, one of about 50 that were sold to the German government in 1937 for use by the military's General Officers. This Horch won second place in the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Prewar Preservation Class. It is 100 percent original, having been stored for over 50 years in South Dakota. Two other classics in the collection, the 1933 Auburn 12, and the 1926 Kissel Brougham, both National First Prize winners of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), represent the pinnacle of 1920's and 1930's classics, along with several other unusual cars on display from that era."

I'm from Detroit. I grew up at the Henry Ford and seeing the automobile museum there. I love cars. This museum was worth checking out. Some very unique cars here. A good handful are described as still running and taken out from time to time. I would love to see that! Cute gift shop. Friendly greeter. Pictures are allowed and encouraged. No touching the cars or getting inside. Very cool old memorabilia and signs hanging on the wall. Interesting old telegram asserting that Springfield MO officials were responsible for naming it Rte 66. Go here! Great place to go if the weather isn't cooperating.
Worth a stop! The building is also historic--it is where the generators for the Hoover Dam were built. The building is very industrial and not like a pretty museum. They have a great selection of really pristine cars. Plan on at least an hour. I spent about 1.5 but I tend to go slowly. I think the $15 + tax entry is a bit on the high side.
