It is back! See the amazing Collings Foundation and American Heritage Museum’s collection of early automobiles come to life in this extraordinary living history event.
Horses, bicycles, electric cars, vehicles powered by water, or small explosions, all poised to solve the transportation issues of the day. The Collings Foundation and American Heritage Museum will host a most entertaining event that pits some of the greatest mobility-based technological advancements against each other in Race of the Century.
During the early 1900’s transportation technologies advanced at an incredible rate. The thought of a “horseless carriage” rumbling down the path or a “flying machine” moving through the air seemed amazing. The traditional horse and buggy quickly became history with the emergence of automobiles like the 1905 Franklin to the Model T and Sprint Racers.
Gates open at 9:00am each day and close at 5:00pm. The Race of the Century begins around 1:00pm each day.
All three museums will be open: The American Heritage Museum, The Historic Aviation Hangar and Classic Automobile Barn. This is a unique opportunity to see some of the world’s most rare aircraft, extraordinary American classic automobiles, historic tanks, armored vehicles, military artifacts and much more.
The great musician Richard Hughes will play to several vintage silent movies over the day.
There is over 100,000 square feet of space within the American Heritage Museum and Hangar combined.
Food and beverage will be available for purchase on site and picnics are allowed.
