There's a great big, beautiful tomorrow.

From Disney Magic to a beautiful collection of pedal cars, there’s something in this exhibit for every kid and all the kids at heart! Over 100 pedal cars adorn this exhibit including cars, tractors, airplanes, anniversary models, police cars, fire trucks, and so many more. And, enjoy a “picture perfect” opportunity to climb into our 1919 Whippet Assistant Chief’s Fire Truck for a quick snapshot with your family and friends!

Only at the Gilmore Car Museum can you see the only movie set to ever leave Walt Disney Studios – the one-of-a-kind studio set and car from the 1967 Walt Disney film, The Gnome-Mobile.

Walt Disney visited the Gilmore Family and Donald’s car collection on September 18, 1964, just two years before Donald would open his collection to the public. He signed into Donald’s guest book and listed his address as “Disneyland U.S.A.” and later donated this over-sized movie set and accompanying 1930 Rolls Royce to the Gilmore Collection.
