Pontiac Transportation Museum Slated To Open Spring 2019

It’s easy to credit Detroit as the city behind the American auto industry, but let’s not forget another city just down the road. Another Mecca of automotive sorts is Pontiac, Michigan. While Detroit does hold the monicker, of “The Motor City,” Pontiac played an integral role in transitioning the United States from equestrian transportation to real horsepower. Wait… you know what we mean! 

To make sure no one forgets the great accomplishments of companies rooted in Pontiac history, The Pontiac Transportation Museum has been created. According to the museums website, it was created to, “Celebrate the heritage and remarkable achievements of these many enterprises, the Pontiac Transportation Museum is being created to showcase examples of the cars, trucks, and other vehicles designed or built here – vehicles that truly changed the nation and the world.”

And change the world they did! Even now, with the construction of the Pontiac Museum and the beautiful collection it will house, countless people will be able to enjoy and be inspired by all it has to offer. 

Not only will the 55,000 square-foot museum house vehicle display galleries, a theatre, library, and restoration spaces, it will also maintain various programs aimed at educating young people, and urging them to follow their own dreams. 

Located at 250 W. Pike Street in Pontiac, Michigan, the Museum is slated to open it’s doors to the public in the Spring of 2019. If you’d like to find more information or submit a donation, you can visit the museum’s website at pontiactransportationmuseum.org
