Audrain Automobile Museum

More of an Art Museum than a Car Museum.

  • Business Profile

Business Overview

Founded in 2014 in Newport, Rhode Island with a mission of "Preserving, Celebrating & Sharing Automotive History," the Audrain Automobile Museum connects and engages with other local non-profits and the greater Aquidneck Island community. The historic Audrain Building was transformed into a captivating exhibition space, fit specifically for our cultural needs. The museum, with access to collections containing over 350 cars and motorcycles ranging from brass era pre-War cars to Supercars of the 2000s, displays three or four fresh and thematic exhibits each year, to entertain all generations and stylistic preferences. America’s love affair with automobiles is intrinsic, and Newport’s place in the history of the automobile is essential. The museum supports and educates the Aquidneck Island community through programs and car events, including the Audrain Newport Concours & Motor Week, "A Celebration of History, Luxury, & Sport," held each year in early October. As the Audrain Automobile Museum continues to grow, so does its status as a must-stop destination for both car enthusiasts and Newport visitors alike.
