Learning Events.
Great events, designed for people who are
driven to learn. (While they’re having fun).

The Gilmore Car Museum is all about education, about a memorable experience, and about fun. We combine those things in our learning events, which feature great topics taught by skilled instructors in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our learning events can be strictly about cars—how to drive a Model T Ford, for example. But we also hold sessions on how to take great photographs (of cars, of course) and other interesting topics. All learning events are open to members and non-members alike, so always be on the watch for more information, and plan to join us. Another great event is always around the corner.
