  • The museum was permanently closed on March 31, 2019. One of my reasons for visiting Tupelo was this Museum. I was told by the Tupelo Visitor Center that it had closed, the day before I arrived.  more »

  • This place is great. It is a fun place and amazing to see all the automobiles together. I'm sad to see the collection get split up. My family all enjoyed this place... Ages 18-12. It was also cool with the Elvis car and section of movie posters that he started in. It close March 31st...Go if you can... You won't be disappointed.
  • The collection was incredible with many rare vehicles from the 1800's and early 1900's If you have time in March go see it. My wife and I were driving through, saw a sign and stopped - So glad we did. What was even more special was Ms. Spain taking the time to visit with us and share her dreams of using the auction proceeds. Thank you.
