OHTM's Volunteers brought our "new" 1911 Overland Town Car into the shop last night. After a few hits and misses they were able to stand back and watch it run (this video is a "miss". The next post will be the "hit"). As a donated car we thank those who support our mission in very generous ways! Cars like this greatly aid our educational side by allowing our volunteers to become fluent with the mechanical history and application of transportation. Thanks go to Doug, Bob, Philip, James, Peter , Cheryl and Charlie (our crew for 12-18-14).
We had a fabulous staff holiday celebration yesterday and the Museum opens today at 10:00 a.m. for business as usual. We hope you and your holiday guests will come see us this month! We have several stunning vehicles on loan for the winter and, of course, our newest exhibition "Faster: The Quest for Speed" which is certain to delight all transportation enthusiasts!
Though we will be closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day, The Owls Head Transportation Museum is open from 10:00 to 5:00 seven days a week, year-round. Regular admission is $12, admission for visitors over age 65 is $10 and youth under 18 as well as retired and active duty military personnel are always admitted free of charge.
