"The Sarasota Classic Car Museum is recognized as the second oldest continuously operating antique car museum in the Nation!

Antique, exotic, European and one-of-a-kind classics are featured in our rotating exhibits throughout the museum, seven days a week.

Here you will view Circus Magnate, John and Mable Ringling’s collection of Rolls Royce autos, John Lennon’s 1965 Mercedes Benz, and Paul McCartney’s beloved Mini Cooper. Classic and muscle cars are on display side by side, including Don Garlits, dragster number two! The museum features immaculately restored vintage automobiles spanning over a one-hundred year history of man’s automotive genius!

The museum features over 75 automobiles, consisting of the alphabet of the world’s foremost automobile manufacturers; Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Cadillac, DeLorean, Edsel and Ferrari are just to name a few of the exquisite examples of automotive craftsmanship!
