Steer and Batmobile.

Batmobile and Big Steer

At the front gate of the Tallahassee Automobile Museum sit a mock-up of the 1966 TV Batmobile on concrete blocks, plus a giant bull standing guard on a trailer. You can visit them for free and there's even a parking spot so you can pull over and snap a photo. There are real movie Batmobiles inside the museum (admission fee). I'm not sure why the bull is there.

Definitely not worth the $17.50 price of admission. Everything is cramped and you can barely see the whole car. This museum mostly had glass cases full of pocket knives. Weird collection of items.

Creamery van.

Automobile Museum - Lincoln Funeral Carriage

My husband and I just stopped, this place is right off I-10...$13.50 for adults and TOTALLY worth it! Saw a Smithfield Creamery van, a De Lorean, and the Lincoln funeral carriage. This guy has every car you could probably think of, and every Case brand knife that was ever made. There are a lot of other odd and ends that make this museum a great attraction to check out!

Cars and knives -- always a winning combination.

Lincoln funeral carriage.

Automobile Museum - Lincoln Funeral Carriage

Very nice tribute to Abraham Lincoln in the museum. There are also hundreds of quality cars, making it one of the ten most beautiful American car museums. And a collection of gas pumps, golf bags, knives, guns, safes, jukeboxes, pedal cars, outboard motors, canals, bicycles and motorcycles, models of all kinds, doll and bears ... not to miss.
