The Texas Museum of Automotive History’s curators maintain a collection of more than 100 pristine specimens of classic, race, muscle, and antique cars. Inside a more than 50,000-square-foot facility, visitors view rows of sleek vehicles dating back to 1901, their colorful coats shimmering beneath the spotlights and their engine blocks pumped full of formaldehyde for preservation. Visitors can view the banana-yellow panels and open-air cockpit of the 1913 Mercer 35 Raceabout or the curvaceous 1968 Lamborghini Miura S, widely considered the world’s first supercar due to its ability to race up walls. Examples of professional racing and commercial cars throughout the century demonstrate the close relationship between the two disciplines’ developments.
The museum offers discounted admission rates for children and seniors, along with free admission for children under the age of 2.
