Martin Auto Museum

Arizona, Western

Created in 2005, the Martin Auto Museum is the brainchild of owner and founder Mel Martin. Mel saw a need to share a collection of vehicles that represent significant periods in automotive history.

After 12 years of operation, Mel had more vehicles in storage than he did in the museum! It was time to move to a bigger building. In March of 2022, the new and improved Martin Auto Museum and Event Center opened on the northwest corner of 43rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road.

The museum features over 140 vehicles, including classic cars, hot rods, customs, imports, and much more.

It also has one of the largest collections of auto memorabilia, antique gas pumps, and signage anywhere.

Kids can enjoy the carousel or our variety of driving and racing games.

Brand new location in 2022!
