Upcoming Exhibits & Events
October 5 - December 28, 2014
In the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, cars were big. Really big. Dashboards were made of metal with just a few soft surfaces, engines had very large cubic inch displacements and you could fit all of your friends comfortably into the car. Everyone was happy. Soaring gas prices and government mileage regulations meant automobile designers had to design cars with fuel efficient engines and make cars lighter and smaller to remove weight. How boring.
We’re celebrating Big American 8 Cylinder Power. Come to The Murphy to view our exhibit featuring Packards, Lincolns, Chryslers and Cadillacs in GIANT proportions. We’ll give you the stats on length, weight and mpg’s which will make you feel a lot better about what you are driving, although not anywhere near as cool or fun.

Exhibit Runs: January 18 - March 30, 2015
Special Event Jeep Show
Sunday, January 18 | 9am-4pm
Want to show your Jeep? Register your Jeep here, no charge.
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. Our first quarter exhibit for 2015 will be honoring this great American invention. We will be displaying 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 local Jeep enthusiasts from the Low Range 4x4 Club. Bring the whole family!
