Ohio Mentor Museum of Speed Features Nearly 150 Vintage Cars

What was more memorable: your first date or your first car? If you said car, then you need to pay a visit to the Mentor Museum of Speed, featuring nearly 150 vintage classic and muscle cars housed in 60,000 square feet of automotive heaven! You’ll see cars up close and in person that are normally found only in private collections.

"Everybody has a favorite car from their childhood that brings back fond memories," said Rick Iacoboni, marketing director at the Mentor Museum of Speed. "For me it's T-birds. For others, it could be Mopars, Hemis, Vettes, Cudas or Camaros. There’s a favorite car here for everybody."

Unlike most museums, these cars are completely restored and 100 percent ready to be driven at all times. The vehicles on display are rotated on a weekly basis, so there’s always something new to see.

From the working repair shop, to the race trace track that circles the collection, to the automotive art hanging on the walls, you’ll spend hours indulging your love affair with the automobile. There’s even a free video arcade just in case everyone in your group doesn’t have 100 percent, high-octane pumping through their veins. Whatever your passion, plan to make a day of it.

Located just east of downtown Cleveland, the Mentor Museum of Speed is open Monday - Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Daily admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children age 12 and under. Individual year memberships are $50 and a lifetime membership is $99. The group rate (15 or more) is $8/person.

"Museum memberships make great gifts for hard-to-buy people, especially if you are a car enthusiast," Iacoboni said. "Additionally, we are an event destination – car clubs, weddings, fundraisers, corporate, etc."
