Detroit Historical Museum

Central, Michigan

Detroit Historical Museum’s America’s Motor City exhibition tells the fascinating stories of both how cars built metro Detroit and how metro Detroit built cars, as well as why Detroit became the Motor City.

The exhibit incorporates the museum’s popular Automotive Showplace exhibit at its entrance, where cars from our collection are featured. The area also showcases visitors’ stories of their experiences with their favorite classic cars — complete with vintage photos of individual cars and their owners.

The exhibition continues with a brief nod to car culture. Detroit loves cars, and automotive manufacturing in Detroit has resulted in a deep-rooted connection with the automobile. The Detroit International Auto Show and Autorama, shows like the Woodward Dream Cruise and the Concours d’Elegance, and dealership loyalty all are part of Detroit’s car culture. Moreover, Detroit has demonstrated automotive superiority in auto styling, technology, marketing, car use, etc.
