Behind the Scenes

Our Story

MDCC began as the private collection of Ward and Brenda Morgan. Through their vision, passion and generosity the museum opened to the public in the spring of 2019 and later became a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are proud to showcase a stunning collection of over 65 cars ranging from 1907 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!

Our Mission

To share the love of vehicles through a unique automotive collection and visitor experience that will appeal to all.

Our Vision

To provide an understanding of the past, embrace the present and imagine the future.
