About Us

What began as an idea by a group of car enthusiasts soon turned into a reality for the Kansas City car community. Two years of grassroots marketing and three awards later, the Kansas City Automotive Museum received its first major donation, making the long awaited museum possible.

The Kansas City area is home to major automotive and motorcycle manufacturing, racing and a vibrant collector community. We have a long, storied and proud automotive heritage that needs to be preserved and celebrated. The Kansas City Automotive Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable corportation. Currently located in Olathe, our interim museum features more than 30 cars and motorcycles in a 12,000 square foot display space. The museum highlights significant Kansas City automotive history such as 1965 Le Mans winner Masten Gregory (the "Kansas City Flash"), the Ford Winchester Plant, and Greenlease Cadillac. In addition, the Kansas City Automotive Museum hosts car club meetings and special events throughout the year.

Our future plans for the Kansas City Automotive Musuem include a much larger facility big enough to rival the best automotive museums in the country.
