08.15.15 Super COOL Montana Auto Museum – Deer Lodge, Montana

20150814_105217Saturday, August 15, 2015 – Happy Saturday everyone!  It’s beautiful here in Deer Lodge, Montana and we’re looking forward to a wonderful weekend!

The Old Prison Museum and Montana Auto Museum are both in Deer Lodge, Montana.  The auto museum is inside of the prison museum building.

Having rested for two days we’re off for another adventure to check these out!  Here’s contact information if you want to visit. Old Prison Museum, 1106 Main Street, Deer Lodge, MT 59722  (406) 846-3111

We saw the Montana Auto Museum cars first and man were they beautiful!  It is so hard to believe that in this little town there are over 150 old

restored cars on display.  Because of the amazing beauty of these automobiles there were a lot of pictures taken.  Today’s adventures will become three separate blog posts with the Montana Auto Museum being today’s post.

While touring the museum we met another RVing couple, Jennifer and Denny from California.  They were really nice and we enjoyed visiting with them.  Denny has a history of owning Corvettes just like we did and that was neat!  Hi there Jennifer and Denny, sure hope I spelled your names correctly.  We look forward to seeing you all again in our travels.  Don’t forget to check out!!

If antique cars aren’t your thing please pass this blog post along to someone who loves them.  We’ve always loved them and this tour really rang our happy bell!  Hope you will enjoy coming along this adventure into the past with us! Nov. 2020 I removed most of the photos to free up space for more current photos.

I hope you enjoyed this abbreviated tour of the Montana Auto Museum.  There were at least 140 more cars I didn’t take pictures of.  We really enjoyed reliving owning or driving in some of these old cars as we walked along.

Tomorrow’s blog will be about the Old Prison which itself is the museum.  That tour was self-guided and actually sort of creepy.  Lots of pictures of the prison to share too!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
