Gilmore and More

By Autosaurus Published: June 18, 2010

Just returned from my annual trip to the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan (just north of Kalamazoo) and was pleasantly surprised.  It's more accurate to call this a €œmuseum campus€ because more than one museum is located there.  In addition to the Gilmore Car Museum, which was established years ago, there are more museums€”and more on the way.  Right now, there's the Classic Car Club of America Museum, the Pierce-Arrow Museum and the just-opened Franklin Museum.  There's also the Tucker Archives.  A few months ago it was announced that the Cadillac-LaSalle Museum and Ford Model A Foundation are building their museums there.  In addition, the Lincoln Motor Car Museum board has announced its intentions to built its museum on the Gilmore Museum campus.  That'll be seven museums in total!  In addition to the great museums, there's a genuine old-time diner that serves food and a vintage Shell gas station.  Currently, the Gilmore Museum has a great drag racing exhibition, which should appeal to a lot of Akron area folks who remember those glorious days in Akron.
