MY Garage Museum
The MY Garage Museum & Retail Store is a popular attraction at Mid America Motorworks’ facilities in Effingham. The center houses literally thousands of pieces of automotive collectibles and memorabilia.
The facility also showcases an actual 1910 gas station that was moved and restored on-site. However, the most significant pieces in the collection are the bevy of prototypes, concepts, and racing vehicles.
The museum has recently refocused emphasis from rare, low-mileage originals to showcasing automobiles that car lovers would not be able to see up close anywhere else. Between 15 and 20 cars are on display, with the specific display changing throughout the year. The museum’s current display includes the Last C4 Corvette, with the last small block engine produced in the Flint, Michigan plant, a 3000-mile original 1954 model, and CERV I, an open-wheel engineering prototype created by legendary Corvette designer Zora Arkus-Duntov, now restored to its original condition.
Admission: FREE but donations go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital
Open: Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm, Saturday 8am – 4pm, Closed Sunday
