First, we care about you and hope all of our visitors, supporters, and friends are staying well.  Weathering the pandemic hasn’t been easy but we did it!!! The Museum was closed for five(5) long months but happy to be opened again.  Being closed truly affected monthly funding for continued Museum operations such as electricity, gas, water, maintenance and more.  Please consider helping us and making a caring donation to help fuel our engines. Our goal is to raise $75,000. We know many of you are in a tough position during the Pandemic, but every $$$ dollar helps. Please visit our website and click the top tab that says “DONATE and then click Make a Donation tab”…Any amount is graciously appreciated.  Our staff and volunteers remain committed to providing everyone a safe and exciting Museum experience as we continue to move forward.  Thank you so much for thinking of us.  Stay Safe!!!!

June, July, & August: Tuesday thru Saturday 10am – 3pm. Sunday Noon – 3:00pm.
September, October, & November: Wednesday thru Saturday 10:00am -3:00pm. Sunday Noon – 3:00pm.
December: Tuesday thru Saturday 10:00-4:00pm. Sunday Noon – 4:00pm.

Please know that we are following all CDC Guidelines and recommendations.  All visitors are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing while enjoying the Museum.  We will continue to monitor the situation and reply on guidance from public officials and make adjustments as necessary.  Our team is available by phone or e-mail (director@americaonwheels.org) to answer questions regarding the scheduling of group tours, parties and rentals.  As always, the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff remain important to us.  Thank you ~~ Linda Merkel, Executive Director
