Become a Friend of the Kokomo Auto Museum!

If you have never been to the Kokomo Automotive Museum (or have not been for awhile), I would highly recommend planning a visit soon.  Beyond the stunning collection of over 100 of the finest antique and classic automobiles, several special exhibits have been set up recently throughout the museum.  A replica of the 1894 Elwood Haynes’ automobile, the Pioneer, has been given new exhibit space on a beautiful mirrored turntable, sharing the story of America’s First Car.  Other special exhibits include a machine shop that has been recreated to visually show the inside of an early factory and a rare 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby Cobra  GT 500, which is currently featured in a spotlight display in the museum.


The Kokomo Automotive Museum recently launched a new membership program “Friends of the Museum.”  Immediately after the launch of the “Friends” program, an anonymous donor stepped up with an offer to the museum.  This person will donate $500 when the museum raises $10,000 and $15,000 respectively, and an additional $1,000 as the museum raises funds at various increasing increments, for a total donation of $5,000.  This offer is only good during the museum’s current membership drive through November 22, 2012.

There are a variety of donation levels available, with increasing benefits as the amount given increases.  If you would like to join the “Friends of the Museum” and help meet their financial goal, simply visit their website at www.KokomoAutomotiveMuseum.org, call (765) 454-9999, or stop in the museum Tuesday – Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday 11am-4pm.  The Kokomo Automotive Museum is located at 1500 North Reed Road (U.S. 31), inside the Kokomo Event & Conference Center.
