Do You Remember The Good Old Days?


The William E. Swigart, Jr. Automobile Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit museum dedicated to the preservation and history of the American automobile history. Our remarkable collections have existed for more than 85 years, beginning as a private passion of our founder W. Emmert Swigart. His son, William E. Swigart, Jr., fell under the spell of these wonderful machines and built up the collection to about 150 cars, of which 30 to 35 are on display at the museum at one time. Some are one-of-a-kind such as the 1936 Duesenberg 12 cylinder Gentlemen's Speedster, the 1920 Carroll, and the 1916 Scripps-Booth. The Swigart Museum is the only automobile museum in the country where visitors can see two Tuckers side-by-side, the 1947 "Tin Goose" Prototype and #1013.

The museum is accented with even more history. The automotive license plate and radiator emblem collections are believed to be the largest in the world. Automobile lights and horns, bicycles, toys, vintage clothing, and memorabilia are on display throughout the museum. In addition, a gift shop stocked with automobile related products for young and old alike makes a visit to the William E. Swigart, Jr. Automobile Museum a uniquely entertaining and educational experience for all members of the family.

The museum is open daily from Memorial Day weekend through the end of October.

The Swigart Museum's 1908 Studebaker Electric won the Amelia Island Award at the Amelia Island Elegance on Saturday March 10, 2018. The students from the Pennsylvania College of Technology worked on the car and got it running for the first time in 25 years and were there to help us accept the award. The driver, Luke Miller, of the Studebaker Electric is one of the students from the college that worked it.

Please Adopt Me!

Adopt Your Favorite Museum Car

Adopt-A-Car, is a new program at The Swigart Museum. If you especially like a specific car in the collection this is your opportunity to adopt that car for one year. Your name will be placed on the stand in front of the car for all to see and admire, not to mention bragging rights. The yearly fee is $100.00. With this program, you will not only help to defer the financial responsibility we have with each car (insurance, care, maintenance), but we hope it will give you the feeling of being part of the museum and its collections.

For a complete list of this year's participants, please


Please call Marge Cutright at the museum office at 814.643.2024
