National Automobile Museum

The vision of the National Automobile Museum is to be a dynamic, internationally recognized museum that is a must-see cultural attraction, which focuses on exceptional visitor experiences and services and is an inspiring and meaningful organization to those who visit, support, and serve it.

The renovated museum and new expansion looks to create a physical form and space of that vision: A dynamic building with a bold, yet elegant form. The physical form of the building also reflects the needs of the program elements. It is both public and private, at once transparent and solid, flexible and specialized. The re-imagined museum provides flexible and functional space to support a world-class car collection. The museum will also be supported by, and in turn, support five major components integrated within the facility: education, experience, culture, retail/restaurant, and community outreach.
