WHAT’S ON THE HORIZON
● A display hall that goes beyond simply being a room filled with old cars and artifacts. The displays will focus on conveying automotive history through signage, dioramas, and videos. The emphasis will be on stories – stories of the museum's cars and exhibits, and stories of the people who drove, built, and maintained them.
The exterior facade of the display hall will resemble a 50s car dealership. Inside will be a "showroom" that holds two or three old cars that are open to visitors.
● A learning facility with both classrooms and a fully equipped automotive restoration shop. The objective is to introduce youth to careers in the automotive industry. Relationships will be established with secondary and post-secondary schools that have automotive-related programs. Opportunities will also be available to the general public to learn about, and experience, automobiles and their history.
● A 50s-themed cafe will add another fun element to the museum. The cafe, with its 1950s era service station styling, will recall the time of cars, diners, and not-so-fast food – and it will make an important contribution to operating expenses.
