About this business
From Our Editors
Since its opening in 1963, the Canadian Automotive Museum has honored the automotive industry by displaying mint-condition vehicles, some of which date back to the beginning of the 20th century. Many of these cars were manufactured in Canada, whereas others come from America or overseas?but each one has a history that educates and entices visitors.
