Whatever you drive, your car contains the evolutionary history of more than a hundred car companies that contributed innovation and design enhancements for over a hundred years.

Some of these companies are no longer household names. But many remain legends.  As a thriving commercial and manufacturing hub, Ypsilanti had a significant influence on these pioneering companies and the men who built them.

The Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum tells the story of these companies, preserves an important era in American history, and presents some beautiful machines.

Including and occupying a fully preserved pre-war automobile dealership, the National Hudson Motor Car Company Museum, tells the story of Hudson from their founding in 1909 until the company closed in 1957. Learn about the role Ypsilanti and its pioneers played in the history of the automobile. See vehicles of bygone eras, study signs and records of early area auto dealers, and solve the mystery of the world’s most notorious highway map.
