Auto Museums Around The World
Automobiles have been around for quite a long
time. In fact, most experts agree that the first car which was suitable
for use on public roads was developed in the late 19th century.
Since then, our love of and fascination with cars has continued to increase.
While most of us rely on our vehicles simply as a mode of transportation,
some individuals view them as works of art. For these people, viewing classic
or unique cars in pristine shape is a popular hobby. Individuals who are
interested in seeing some of the most famous cars in the world should visit
various car museums both in the United States, and abroad.
United States Auto Museums
There is no question that there are a number
of museums in the United States strictly devoted to the automobile. Some
of the most popular of these include the Owls Head Transportation Museum
in Owls Head, Maine, and the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada.
Individuals who are interested in more unique museums may want to visit
the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California, which specializes
in famous TV and movie cars, or the National Corvette Museum in Bowling
Green, Kentucky. As suggested by the name, the only cars allowed at this
