Any visitor to Prestige Imports certainly understands that a tour through our showroom is essentially a tour of the world’s finest exotics and supercars. But what if you’re looking to see something slightly more nostalgic? South Florida also features some great auto museums, each offering something not likely found elsewhere. So which are the best? Here are our favorite car museums near Miami, FL.
The Best Car Museums near Miami, FL
Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum | Fort Lauderdale, FL
Showcasing the collection of legendary Fort Lauderdale florist Arthur Stone, this museum showcases the prime obsession of its founder: the Packard. Although the automaker only was in existence from 1899 until 1958, in that time it made some truly remarkable autos. Each year of production is represented at this museum, along with all sorts of other memorabilia.
The Miami Auto Museum | North Miami, FL
This collection is literally two blocks from Prestige Imports, even if it feels transported from a different time and place altogether. Along with a number of different lounge spaces, there are also a number of enthralling exhibits, including ones featuring European classics, James Bond cars, and a full Batman exhibit.
The Dauer Classic Car Museum | Sunrise, FL
The Dauer Classic Car Museum is something of an anomaly. Instead of just showing cars or brands, it’s an immersive experience where visitors can enjoy a wide swatch of American culture, particularly after World War II. There are exhibits dedicated to attending drive-in movies, beach parties, and even what it was like to ride in a 1950s ambulance. It’s one of a kind, believe us.
Wings Over Miami Air Museum | Miami, FL
Okay, we’re breaking with our initial plan here, but that’s only because we just love airplanes and always have. Situated at the Miami Executive Airport, this small museum serves as a tribute to the many veterans and aviators who helped take their transportation efforts skyward. This is definitely worth a visit if you’re ever down that way.
There are many great museums in our area, and we certainly didn’t cover them all. If you’ve got one that you’d like to add to the comments, feel free to do so, and come see us soon at Prestige Imports.
