Historic Auto Attractions - Roscoe: $12 for Two Adult Admissions to Historic Auto Attractions

History is like Frankenstein's monster; all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two adult admissions to Historic Auto Attractions in Roscoe (a $24 value). After Labor Day weekend, Historic Auto Attractions is only open on the weekends through the end of the November.

Rife with presidential artifacts from Ulysses S. Grant to Ronald Reagan and pop-culture memorabilia from Elvis Presley to Ghostbusters, the 36,000-square-foot Historic Auto Attractions curates an eclectic collection of historical and pop-culture memorabilia through 11 themed rooms. Visitors can peruse World Leaders to see the limousines of Harry S. Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson, as well as the personal cars of Adolf Hitler, Nikita Khrushchev, and Benito Mussolini. President Kennedy's assassination is revisited at the Kennedy Day In Dallas exhibit, which displays the actual Secret Service car that drove behind Kennedy's car in the presidential motorcade, as well as the ambulance that took Lee Harvey Oswald to the hospital after Jack Ruby shot him. The museum's new Abraham Lincoln display introduces history buffs to Lincoln's White House rocking chair, his personal razor blade, and his beloved Captain America comic-book collection.

Historic Auto Attraction also boasts dozens of recognizable pop-culture pieces, including the sleek design of the Batman Returns Batmobile in Movieland, the Ghostbusters' ECTO-1 cruiser, and the Family Truckster from National Lampoon's Vacation. The museum's Famous Stars & Cars puts visitors up-close to a Marilyn Monroe dress, Johnny Cash's makeshift "One Piece at a Time" car, and a pair of Buddy Holly's signature glasses. Historic Auto Attractions rounds out its displays with racecars in the World of Speed room, including Danica Patrick's 2005 Indianapolis 500 car, and its Gangsterland exhibit, featuring the 1932 Studebaker John Dillinger used to rob an Indiana bank.

Great collection. Would recommend it to all age groups.

hidden jewel in No IL. Fantastic place and I have been telling several folks about it. Even my 9 year old boy enjoyed it.
John M. · November 7, 2011
The displays were amazing. There was a lot more than just cars. It was much better than we had even thought it would be. We have already mentioned it to several people as an interesting place to go.
