Museum History

Petit Jean Mountain

Located on Petit Jean Mountain, The Museum of Automobiles was founded in 1964 by the late Arkansas Governor Winthrop Rockefeller. It housed his collection of Antique & Classic Automobiles until 1975, when the Collection was sold, and the building and grounds donated to the State of Arkansas, Department of Parks.

A not-for-profit corporation was formed and reopened the Museum in 1976 with cars on loan from collectors around the country. During the following years, the display was enlarged and upgraded, including a permanent collection of thirty-plus automobiles, donated by supporters in Arkansas and surrounding states. Also on display is an Antique Gun Collection, Antique Arcade Machines, and Automobile related memorabilia.
