NW Vintage Car and Motorcycle Museum

About Us


The Northwest Vintage Car & Motorcycle Museum is a group of people who are interested in vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles. We are dedicated to providing educational opportunities about vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles for all ages. The Museum is an entirely volunteer, membership-owned Museum open to people of all ages, with or without a vehicle.

The Northwest Vintage Car & Motorcycle Museum is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible.


The mission of the museum is to promote the life-long education of our community, by interpreting the heritage, history, and evolution of automobiles and motorcycles over twenty-five years old. Appropriate activities generate interest, fund raising, and a sense of fun and camaraderie among the members and visitors.

We are joining other museums like the Pacific Northwest Truck and Oregon Electric Railway located at Antique Powerland Museum in Brooks, OR, I-5 exit 263, 8 miles north of Salem.


This location, in the heart of the Willamette Valley, within easy driving distance to several million people and the visitors using I-5, would be near impossible to duplicate. The other museums, in place and planned, are assets which can support each other as we grow.

For the general community, our educational programs for all ages will have a strong emphasis on serving youth. An interest in cars and motorcycles can be life-long and wholesome, a career or an emotional release, or a love affair!
