Thousands of families take a trip down I-10 eastbound every summer to visit beaches in Florida or to drive to Disney World.

If you are going to destinations like Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, or Panama City you won't go as far as Tallahassee, you are missing out on a true treasure of a museum.

The Tallahassee Car Museum in Florida is a true treasure. It is full of every kind of automobile you might imagine, but that's not all.

The man who owns the facility started collecting other items when families didn't know what to do with their loved ones' treasured items.

A listener says they stumbled across the museum while in Tallahassee for a relative's graduation. As the website says, it's like being able to walk through history.

They have so many different makes and models of cars, that you will be amazed at the stunning collection. Some of the recent automotive additions to the museum are a 1951 Harley Davidson "Police" Servi-Car and a 1932 Ford Coupe "XS CASH" Show Car.

Once owner DeVoe Moore started collecting cars he realized there is also another need. He says often family members will inherit collections of items they are not interested in, but they also don't want the items sold. That's when he started adding on to the museum, and he has several collections including the following:



Boat Motors

Fishing Lures

Sports Memorabilia

Adding Machines


Pedal Cars

Native American Artifacts

Bat Mobiles


Antique Cash Registers

Brass Fans

Steinway Pianos

Antique Time Pieces

General Store Items

This place has something that everyone in your family will like. In the information about Moore is a line that really nails down what the museum offers,

A furtherance of this passion is to ensure the children of today have an opportunity to visit the past, to be excited and amazed at their own history and potential.

Moore originally started as a car collector but then when he realized other families had collections that they wanted to donate to him, he had to expand his museum. And that's just what he has done to preserve history.
