- Museum Exhibitions
The Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum
Travel back in time and discover classic cars and auto paraphernalia. The Antique Car Museum is the brain child of Arthur Stone, who has been collecting vintage vehicles since the 1940s! The new wing of the museum just opened one year ago, and it displays two full rows of cars and more.
The South Florida Railway Museum
Cars were not the only form of transportation years ago. Head to Deerfield and learn about the history of railroading and how it affected the U.S. during the industrial boom in the 1940s. Real railroad artifacts rest inside, while scale models make up three of the permanent exhibits in the museum!
