Automobile Exhibit

Stroll down memory lane through the history of the automobile in the exhibit Bumper to Bumper.

Bumper to Bumper

Built with hundreds of glass panes, the Flue Shop served as the repair area for the boiler flues of steam locomotives. Now the exhibit Bumper to Bumper traces the evolution of the automobile in North Carolina, from tiny buggy-type vehicles to sleek 1940s roadsters and modern cars. The vehicles are set against backdrops that feature life from the 1920s through the 1980s.
