Visitor Tips and News About Art In Motion Museum
Opened by Preston Evans, a retired auctioneer, as a way to display the items he wanted for himself. There are actually three museums in a small compound. Art In Motion has the widest range of stuff, including a scooter once ridden by the Three Stooges, a jukebox made from the tail end of a 1955 Ford Thunderbird, and Harry Houdini's handcuffs.
Foto Excursion is an all-photo-op museum featuring old motorcycles in front of home-made motorcycle-centric backgrounds. Sit on a motorcycle that looks like the one ridden by Steve McQueen in The Great Escape -- in front of a backdrop of hand-painted barbed wire.
The third museum, Building 66, focuses on motorcycle racing at Daytona, and has a replica Captain America chopper from Easy Rider. Preston obviously built his attraction to appeal to motorcyclists, but there's enough odd stuff to satisfy the general public.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 09/16/2012]
