Texas automotive car museums

The definitive list of all Texas car museums.

MOTOR Texas has spent a great deal of time curating an extensive list of Texas car museums that any car enthusiast would enjoy!

Because most museums are non profit organizations they usually don't have much of an advertising budget. They rely heavily on word of mouth, and us, automobile enthusiasts.

MOTOR Texas is here to get the word out and help all museums thrive! We want current and future generations to see the progress of engineering and also see the beauty of automobile design that is just as elegant and beautiful today as it was in the day.

A car museum is a great destination for a Texas road trip.

If you want to see Texas automobile museums continue, and to even thrive, please share this page. It is the easiest, and most powerful thing you can do to support the future of automobile museums in Texas.

Woody's Classic Cars & Baseball Museum

"As Woody and I grew up in the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s we developed a love for baseball as well as the unique cars of that era. So it seemed only natural to start first collecting Baseball memorabilia and then the Classic Cars. God brought forth the idea for us to share these treasures with others in the form of a Museum. We are happy to be able to do this for y’all. So please come and enjoy our unique Museum and its collections." —Patti Wood
