Preschool Programs

Preschool programs at America’s Car Museum encourage your child’s curiosity and imagination. Geared to ages 3-5, this program includes the following three activities:

Storytime & Art – 30 minutes

A museum educator will read a book such as If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dusen and then encourage students to use a variety of materials to illustrate what it would look like if they built a car.

Family Zone Exploration – 30 minutes

This is a space where kids of all ages can play and engage with hands-on activities that include racing a pinewood derby car down a track, “driving” a 1920s Dodge and taking a toy car on a road trip across an oversized map of the United States.

Guided Tour OR Self-Guided Exploration


This condensed tour will cover approximately ¼ of the Museum’s galleries. A museum educator will encourage children to identify design features of various shapes and colors as well as compare and contrast old and new cars.


Small groups of children with an assigned adult will explore the Museum at their own pace using an age-appropriate scavenger hunt as their guide.

Program themes may also be customized to meet your group’s learning objectives.


  • $6 per participant.
  • One adult chaperone for every 5 children will be admitted to the Museum for free to assist with supervision.
