When we say we're planning to run our collection this weekend at History Comes Alive, we mean it! Visitors are in for an especially rare treat on Saturday, October 10, when Andy Swift of Firefly Restoration joins us to demonstrate one of the most impressive pieces on the Museum floor: steam pumper "Vesuvius."
History Comes Alive is the final show of our 2015 outdoor event season and all pre-1995 vehicles are invited to attend! During this special show, museum staff and volunteers will work their way through the collection, demonstrating as many ground vehicles as possible during the course of the weekend! Weather permitting, our antique aeroplanes will take to the sky for the final antique aeroplane show of the season. Gates open at 9:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, the show runs until 3:00 p.m. each day. Admission is $16 for adults, youth under 18 as well as retired and active duty Military (Uniformed Services ID required) are admitted free.
Our 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen replica is one of the pieces our visitors enjoy most, and we love to share it with our guests. Originally designed by Karl Benz, this vehicle represents the first successful gasoline powered automobile and the foundation of one of the world's best known automobile marques: Mercedes-Benz.View Post >>

During our History Comes Alive antique auto and aeroplane show, owners of pre-1995 autos are invited to hit the road and celebrate the conclusion of a great show season with us! We'll demonstrate as many vehicles from our collection as we can squeeze into one weekend! Weather permitting, we'll fly the final antique aeroplane show of the season. Model T rides, family activities, great concessions and more ensure an action-packed weekend on Runway 17. Plan to join us!View Post >>
