World Of Speed Museum

This is a fantastic museum all about race cars, funny cars, and some Mickey Thompson cars (he actually drove and broke records in). There is a little cafe for lunch, and on Saturday mornings they have car shows and coffee. The volunteers that walk around inside the museum are very knowledgeable and one answered every question my husband, who is an avid race fan and mechanic, could throw at him.

World of Speed

A wealth of rare motorsports history. World of Speed volunteers have decades of experience between them. Historic racing cars, muscle cars, and interactive exhibits. This place is awesome!
