The Model Car Museum
The International Model Car Builders' Museum was founded with a simple goal: Preserve the memories of this great hobby for all hobbyists - old and new – and promote and support contemporary contests and displays which encourage current builders. The mission of the Museum is multifaceted. Our initial effort has been to gather and chronicle the history of the model car hobby from the perspective of the builder. The Museum isn't about collecting kits, though we have a modest collection of rare items. Instead, our goal has been to collect as much information and as many artifacts about services and supplies offered to hobbyists, and to focus on those individuals who have expressed their craftsmanship and creativity by constructing scale miniature automobiles. The Museum has several display cases filled with the models of the famous and the obscure alike, each divided into topical displays: street rod, customs, replica stock and competition. We have a large library, display cabinets dedicated to the major kit manufacturers, and we collect memorabilia from contests and displays from around the world.
