Worlds largest Model A museum opens this summer

all-new Model A Ford Museum, proposed as a 12,000-square-foot re-creation of a vintage Ford dealership, is slated to open this summer on the Gilmore Car Museum campus.

When completed, it will become the world's largest public museum dedicated solely to the Model A Ford.

Built on 90 acres of farm land midway between Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Battle Creek, and Lansing, MI, the site includes eight historic barns, a re-created 1930s service station, a small town train station, and nearly three miles of paved roads. It isn’t uncommon for guest to catch a glimpse of one of the vintage cars or the authentic London double-decker bus in motion. Besides its own collection, the ever-expanding campus also serves as the home of the Classic Car Club of America Museum; the Pierce-Arrow Museum; the Franklin Collection at Hickory Corners; as well as the Midwest Miniatures Museum and the Tucker Historical Collection and Library.
