Support the Museum: Fundraising Drive
Founded by the late Winthrop Rockefeller, The Museum of Automobiles was opened in 1964 with his collection of antique and classic cars. Following his death in 1973, his collection was sold and the museum building and grounds were given to Arkansas State Parks. A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was formed to reopen the museum the following year.
Continuing the museum's operation is to continue the legacy of the late Winthrop Rockefeller. Several of Mr. Rockefeller's personal cars are on exhibit. The Museum of Automobiles plays an important role in the preservation, promotion, and the activities of the antique vehicle hobby in Arkansas and surrounding states. The national headquarters of the Mid-America Old Time Automobile Association is located in the Museum. It co-hosts with MOTAA in June the annual Petit Jean Antique Car Show and Swap Meet. The Museum also hosts a Fall Swap Meet, Military Vehicle Show, and Open Car Show.
The Museum is a major tourist attraction and compliments Petit Jean State Park and nearby Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. The Museum is open year round, closing only on Christmas Day. Hours are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm daily.
Museums have a history of needing financial support. Revenues from admissions and gift shop sales will not cover the cost of operations. Our museum is no exception. It is necessary for us to hold an Annual Fundraising Drive to make ends meet.
