If you’re the type of person who appreciates a classic, Audrain Auto Museum is a rare combination – classic cars housed in a building just as notable: the Audrain Building, a 1903 Gilded Age architectural gem.

Audrain Auto Museum has been described as more of an art museum than a car museum, housing over 200 rare and historic vehicles that date from 1899 to the present day. The museum’s goal is to acquire and preserve automobiles with historical significance to Newport.

Not all of the many cars, which range from Brass Era pre-War cars to Supercars of the 2000s are available for viewing on the captivating display floor. This allows the museum to rotate what they display around various themes, allowing for three fresh and unique exhibits per year.
