The Stahl Museum and Automotive Collection

May 10, 2019

For an Automobile fan, a trip to a museum or car collection can be the perfect getaway. The sites, sounds, colors and creative brilliance can be inspiring.

But, when the staff and curators of a place are so well educated and enthusiastic about the history and providence of its treasures and go out of their way to invite a dialog about its significance to our history, it becomes a contribution to our collective understanding and knowledge that can change your life.

The Stahl Museum is such a place. It is a sentimental journey through our inventive history, among the cars and trucks our parents and grandparents may have owned and loved. For me this excursion was a nostalgic and emotional experience.

A collection that provides a homecoming for the vehicles of yesteryear and the adventurous past of our forefathers.

This treasury of vintage cars and trucks are meticulously maintained and restored, with a responsibility to their stewardship that is obvious in their care and attention to safekeeping.

The Stahls undertaking and sharing of such a collection is generous, and shows a noble sensibility and passion for automobiles, music and our national history that is to be admired.

In addition to automobiles, the collection contains hundreds of pieces of memorabilia, gas pumps, signs and an incredible assortment of historic music machines you have to see and hear to believe.

This is not only a World class collection of our cultural heritage, this is a collection of innovation and the greatness of America as a Republic, dedicated to the the uniqueness, goodwill and freedom it represents.

There is no admission charge to the Stahl Museum. A donation box sits just inside the entrance.

Whether you are a lover of all things automotive or just someone interested in our amazing history as a nation, this world class collection is a must see for anyone in the SE Michigan area.
And in this writers humble opinion, could be a destination location for anyone in the world.
