Father’s Day Idea… the Newport Car Museum

 

Vroom! This Father’s Day the Newport Car Museum is free.  From 10am to 4pm, bring Dad for free on Father’s Day. Offer valid with purchase of an adult ticket by a family member.

The Newport Car Museum opened in mid-2017 in a former missile manufacturing facility situated on seven acres of land in Portsmouth, R.I. Since, it has won numerous awards and the favor of large audiences typically reserved for museums with longer histories.

 

Cars as Art

The private collection of some 75+ automobiles at the Newport Car Museum focuses on seven decades of modern industrial automotive design and celebrates cars as works of art.

They reflect a time when artists who likely would have been the great sculptors in the Renaissance Age became stylists, designers and industrial engineers for the Big Three American auto manufacturers and leading European companies such as Jaguar, Porsche, Mercedes Benz and BMW, perhaps enjoying more creative freedom than will ever be experienced by their counterparts today.

 

Car of the Month

Each month a different car is featured - this June it is a 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach.

 

Parking is plentiful and free; selfies, photography and videography are welcome (no tripods).
