Life Style

Opened in 1976, inside you’ll tour over 300 cars in two buildings. Subsequently, the tour takes about two hours to see everything! The antique building houses one of the largest collections of Ford cars. Pictures are always welcome, so bring your cameras!

Among the 300 cars, you’ll see Garlits’ own “Swamp Rat” cars! You can also view all the inductees of the Drag Racing Hall of Fame which makes its home here at the museum, of which Don Garlits himself is a member.

Annual festivals at the museum include “Mopars with Big Daddy,” or Don Garlits! Consequently, car shows take up a weekend in November with prizes awarded for best in show. When you buy tickets for the raffle, you’ll get a chance to win a Charger Hellcat. The entire affair is catered by Sonny’s BBQ!

The Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing is open daily from 9 AM – 5 PM. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, military, college students, and teenagers, and $10 for children.
