I always read about the Lane Motor Museum as a fun place to go in Nashville.
(Dads get in FREE for Father’s Day!)
I’ve put off going for ages, because I’m not really interested in cars.
Can I just say how wrong I was?!?
The Lane Motor Museum is now one of my top recommendations for Nashville tourists — and local dads, too.
Reasons To Love The Lane Motor Museum
Admission is reasonable!
It’s just $9 for adults. Youth (6 to 17) are only $3. And kids 5 and under are FREE.
Seniors (65+) are just $6.
Don’t forget: Dads get in FREE every Father’s Day.
Plus, there’s a $1 discount for AAA members.
You can find buy-one-get-one-free coupons for the Lane Motor Museum in the Entertainment Book.
Lane Motor Museum is near downtown, but a little out of the way.
It’s in the old Sunbeam Bread factory on Murfreesboro Road.
Not one of Nashville’s nicest areas, but the parking lot and picnic area were well-kept and seemed safe to us.
The Lane Motor Museum has an astoundingly quirky collection!
Many of the cars are European marvels with odd designs like 3 wheels or tiny proportions.
We loved the barrier-free (but no touch) exhibits.
The variety of cars — and their beauty — kept us all entertained.
When the kids began to lose interest, I took them to the big play area in the center of the room.
We loved the videos that showed some of the cars in action.
Can you imagine seeing a car like this driving through the streets of Brentwood, Tennessee?
We actually did! A cortege of mini cars drove down Franklin Road last month as part of the 5th annual Micro Car Drive.
Here’s a cool video showing some of the Lane Motor Museum cars in action:
The Lane Motor Museum is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
The hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
TIP: Make sure to grab a fact sheet & map on your way in, and browse the collectible gift shop on your way out!
