Jeep-A Favorite of Liberators & Adventurers
Exhibit Runs: January 18 - March 30, 2015
Special Event Jeep Show
Sunday, January 18 | 9am-4pm
The Jeep design was so basic that even a child’s crayon picture of a car is more complicated than a Jeep. Maybe that’s why we love them. This first exhibit of the year honors this great American invention. We have some wonderful examples from the basic World War II and Korean War Jeeps to the more modern and luxurious Wagoneer. Visit us Sunday, Jan. 18th as we kick off the Jeep exhibit with a special event. The parking lot will be packed with cool Jeeps from the Low Range 4x4 Club. Bring the whole family!
