The newly renovated North Texas Automotive Museum beckons vehicle enthusiasts to explore a collection of more than 60 classic cars housed within a 70,000-square-foot display space. During self-guided tours, visitors can ogle a plethora of historical people-movers, such as the Mercedes Benz 540K, one of only 12 like it in the world, or one of the exhibit’s muscle cars, named for their habit of bench-pressing the nearby Model T when the staff isn’t looking. The museum inventory rotates on a monthly basis and may include Rolls-Royces, Firebirds, and Alfa Romeos, as well as sections devoted to hot rods on loan by their owners and a European automobile display easily identified by the sound of horns honking in a variety of accents.

North Texas Automotive Museum

In 2007, the North Texas Event Center underwent a renovation that transformed a former call center into four fairytale ballrooms and a museum for classic cars. The gleaming Gull Wings, Alpha Romeos, and M6s catalyzed the project, as their owners sought a way to share their collections with the public. This desire dovetailed with the designs of city officials, who wanted to create an enduring cultural institution in Richardson and a way to see the cars without masquerading as stop signs. In order to realize this dream and reverse signs of aging in the 1980 building, contractors installed gleaming parquet floors valued at $2 million, and built out rooms with vaulted ceilings, broad stages, or bars. A crew of event planners oversees the chambers, which range from 1,883 to 14,000 square feet, and contain surprises such as 360 degrees of white drapes and a marble gazebo.
