About the museum...

The Pierce-Arrow Museum was established on the historic campus of the Gilmore Car Museum by the Pierce-Arrow Foundation in 1999. Today it is home to a memorable array of Pierce-Arrow motor cars and memorabilia. A visit to the Pierce-Arrow Museum is also a visit to the broader facilities of the Gilmore Car Museum – the largest in the USA. There are many enjoyable benefits for Pierce-Arrow enthusiasts because of our location within a unique community totally dedicated to automotive history. These attractions include other car club partner museums: the Classic Car Club of America Museum, H. H. Franklin Museum, Model A Ford Museum, Cadillac-LaSalle Museum, and Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum.

The Gilmore Museum is situated on beautifully landscaped grounds in rural southwest Michigan, 13 miles north of I-94 on Highway M-43 between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, 15 minutes east of US 131, and 20 minutes north of I-94.

Over 150,000 people visited the Pierce-Arrow Museum and the Gilmore campus in 2019. It is open to the public 7 days a week from April 1 to December 1. The Gilmore Automotive Heritage Center and much of the campus is open the year round.
