Destination of the Day: Gilmore Car Museum, Kalamazoo/Portage, MI

Destination 2 in the series "Vrooooom"


Michigan has a number of high-quality auto museums.  The Gilmore Car Museum, the former farm of an Upjohn executive, has a vast collection of autos and also manages the collection of a few auto clubs.  The autos are stored in weather tight (but not heated) barns scattered about the grounds.   An on-site diner serves okay food.  The Midwest Miniatures Museum is located in the farmhouse.
