Whatever you drive, your car contains the evolutionary history of more than a hundred car companies that contributed innovation and design enhancements for over a hundred years.

The museum also includes Miller Motors, a fully preserved pre-war automobile dealership that still operates serving America's vintage Hudson fleet.

State Theater

5 minutes away
Famed theater architect C. Howard Crane, who also designed the Fox Theater in Detroit, designed the State Theater in downtown Ann Arbor. Built in 1942, the State Theater was the last commercial building to be completed in Ann Arbor after the start of World War II. During the war, building was restricted due to rationing of construction materials. Patrons of the theater fondly remember the blue neon clock to the side of the screen. The clock was there to keep co-eds aware of the time so that they wouldn’t be late for dormitory curfews that were enforced during the 1940′s, 1950′s and into the 1960′s.Built solely to show movies (with only a screen and no usable stage), the State Theater is a high-style art deco cinema.

University of Michigan Museum of Modern Art

2 blocks away
In 2009, the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) opened a landmark 53,000-square-foot expansion, named the Maxine and Stuart Frankel and the Frankel Family Wing for its lead benefactors, and a major restoration of its historic, 41,000-square-foot home, Alumni Memorial Hall. Designed by principal architect Brad Cloepfil and his team at Allied Works Architecture, the $41.9 million transformation not only more than doubled the space available for collections display, temporary exhibitions, programs and educational exploration, but also fulfilled the Museum’s mission to bridge visual art and contemporary culture, scholarship and accessibility, tradition and innovation.
