Snuggled into the museum-rich Fair Park, a new mint condition museum has cropped up. The Texas Museum of Automotive History, is packed with eye candy from the infancy of the automotive age to modern marvels. From the Model T, to dragsters, to muscle cars, to the classic Bel Aire, everywhere you turn there is a shiny car you only wish you had.
From the early 20th century and through the ages, the descriptions of each car are fascinatingly detailed. Even baseball legend Babe Ruth’s vehicle is here, complete with affadavit of authenticity and his biography, telling a tale of loss and then triumph.
TMAH is not only responsible for filling men’s hearts with the lusty desire to polish things, but it is educational too. TMAH participates in aiding the car-loving community but also youth in need of direction. They host events and educational programs to train students in skills they will need to someday work in the automotive field.
After viewing the museum Tuesday through Sunday from 10am to 6pm, learn more about TMAH’s car shows, car meets, birthday parties and chartered rides to take in that not new car, but fabulous-car smell.
Admission for adults is $10, while children ages 2-11 pay $5. The museum is located at 3350 Grand Avenue in Fair Park, inside gate #5.
