Kruse Automotive & Carriage Museum

Kruse Automotive & Carriage Museum

This automotive museum showcases several vehicles of interest, such as the Batmobile and a car driven by President Hoover.

The Kruse Automotive & Carriage Museum has an incredible collection of cars, ranging from the unique custom stylings of Carl Casper to the sleek modern lines of IRL race cars. We also have a fantastic selection of carriages, including several British Royal Carriages and an original Wells Fargo Stage Coach.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
