The Tallahassee Automobile Museum

The Tallahassee Automobile Museum was the first of many 
fun filled stops on our drive across the country.
We knew that we would have to break up our big adventure with little 
memories like this one in order to keep sane on a five day trip.

First, I must say that while every other second of our trip was planned 
and researched with the app Road Trippers,
this stop was just a happy accident.
We stopped across the street for gas and the giant 
Bat-mobile in the front lawn of the museum grabbed our attention.

I was sold from the beginning or our tour.
There were rows and rows and rows of every 
bad ass car that you could possibly imagine.

It was overwhelming and incredibly impressive to learn that the entire collection,
everything in the giant two story building was all owned 
by one person.

Then to later find out that not only was it privately owned, but every machine,
not just every car, but every machine
in the building worked….perfectly.

The museum should change its name to 
The Tallahassee Boys Toys Museum, 
because it was so much more than cars.

I am pretty sure they had one of every kind of golf club ever made.

As well as over 200 fully operational boat motors.

Oh and did I mention all the original Bat Man stuff?
Cars, subs, motorcycles, costumes and props from the movies.
Needless to say my boys mind was blown.

And don't forget about good ole' EK amongst the collection 
of two wheeled boy toys! 

Not pictured:
tons and tons of tin toys & every kind or gun and case knife ever made.

If you are in the area or just passing through,
I highly recommend the stop.
While it was one of the more costly stops on our trip it was highly worth 
the price of admission to see all of these bits and 
pieces of Automotive and American history.

The Tallahassee Automobile Museum 
is located at:

6800 Mahan Drive
Tallahassee, Florida 32308
