More About Newport Car Museum

The Newport Car Museum is housed in the now-iconic “Big Red Building” that once served as a missile manufacturing facility in Portsmouth, R.I. An impressive 80,000 square feet of Museum space showcases beautiful, exotic and rare cars displayed as art in six galleries: World Cars, Ford/Shelby, Corvette, Fin Cars, Mopars and American Muscle:Then & Now. A separate Pop-Up Porsche Exhibit has been a big hit and will be continued through 2022.

All cars are perched on low platforms or turntables, with no barrier ropes to interfere with photos. Adding to the experience are award-winning historical videos and commissioned artwork; piped in music from the collection’s eight decades of modern industrial design; and friendly, knowledgeable volunteer docents to help with questions.The Mid-Century modern furniture pieces that have been integrated into the artistic stylings of the Museum are by iconic designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Florence Knoll Bassett, Arne Jacobsen and Hans Wegner. “Hoods Up” events, hosted both days of every second weekend of the month, allow inspection of the entire collection’s engines.
