AACA Museum Galleries

First, we’re meeting here at the AACA Museum, Inc. where enthusiasts can enjoy our current featured exhibits.   Land Yachts:  Postwar American Luxury Automobiles showcasing the beauty and glamour of the full-size American convertibles built from the immediate post-WWII years through 1976 when Cadillac produced what was then believed to be the last American convertible.  During this era, the convertible symbolized youth, freedom, and the joys of the open road.   Mid-Atlantic Dodge Brothers Club features a trio of early Dodge Brothers vehicles in our Williams-Clyne Gallery.  Both of these featured exhibits end on April 28th, so it’s the perfect opportunity to see these exceptional vehicles before they’re gone.  Permanent exhibits include the Cammack Tucker Gallery housing the world’s largest collection of Tucker Automobiles and related artifacts; Museum of Bus Transportation focused on the history of buses; model trains; and a diverse collection of automobiles, buses, trucks, and motorcycles from the 1890s through the 1980s.
