Micro Cars - Mini Wonders
September 1 - December 23, 2016
Everything “tiny” seems trendy today and the museum is embracing the fad by bringing back its popular microcar exhibit after a four year absence. “Micro Cars: Mini Wonders” will showcase some of smallest and most unusual sports cars ever built. These sporty vehicles, which will include Crosleys, King Midgets, Isettas, and Messerschmidts, will be displayed alongside our beautiful long and low-slung Packards, which will accentuate their tiny size and quirky design.
