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.”
