Behind the Scenes

Our Story

Midwest Dream Car Collection first began as a private collection and in 2019 opened to the public as an established 501c3 non-profit organization. We are proud to showcase a stunning collection of over 65 cars ranging from 1886 to present day.

The collection, while the most prestigious in the region, has something for everyone including custom cars, muscle cars, exotic cars and classic cars. Through our loaner network, exhibits are routinely rotated so visitors enjoy new vehicles with each visit. We are continually working to find innovative ways to share our love of cars with the Manhattan community.

We invite you to pay us a visit, explore our programs or rent the venue and experience this outstanding collection first-hand!
