Museum of the Horseless Carriage

Central, Michigan

The Museum of the Horseless Carriage’s mission is to engage, advance, support, promote, and administer charitable and educational activities, causes, and projects with the object of preserving the history and artifacts pertaining to the Brass Era automobile (pre-1916) by operating a museum and providing education opportunities for the general public.

The period before 1916 saw an amazing transformation in independent transportation and technological advancements. This period is not emphasized enough in museums or illustrated adequately in school history courses. The world’s history and culture were profoundly impacted by the early development of the horseless carriage and the pioneers who made it happen.

Locating the Museum of the Horseless Carriage at the Gilmore Car Museum creates the perfect partnership. Alignment of mission between our entities, central location in the United States, and the fact that the Gilmore is the largest auto museum in North America make it the perfect place.

The Museum of the Horseless Carriage is open at its temporary location in the Steam Barn on the Gilmore campus until the capital campaign is completed and the new stand-alone museum building is completed. The new building is targeted to be opened in 2024.
