Art Car Museum

The Art Car Museum is a wonderland of chrome on the outside and a treat for those who love art cars on the inside. The exhibit rotates. but there is almost always an interesting car parked out front. During the week of the annual Art Car Parade, the museum closes, but the parade itself attracts people and their cars from all over.
