27 Jul Welcome Back to the Newport Car Museum
COVID Statement (July 27, 2020) – The Newport Car Museum in Portsmouth, R.I. reopened June 8 and maintains regular hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
We are very fortunate to be able to offer a safe and enjoyable experience for all. We have a huge exhibit space (70,000 sq. ft.), and we are not dealing with large crowds. This provides all guests an atmosphere to experience our museum as they feel most comfortable. We are also following all State of Rhode Island and CDC guidelines for cleaning, sanitizing, signage and employee screening. Our Gift Shop is a smaller space where we politely request face mask usage when distancing is not possible.
The Newport Car Museum features a significant private collection of more than 75 beautiful, rare and interesting cars covering seven decades of automobile design. Displayed in six galleries, they tell the story of Ford/Shelby, Corvettes, World Cars, Fin Cars, Mopars and American Muscle Cars. It was included in USA Today’s “Top 10 Best New Attractions” and named Yankee Magazine’s “Best Specialty Museum” within 18 months of its opening in 2017. It also has won an award from the National Association of Automobile Museums for its specially commissioned historic videos, which feature directional sound and can be enjoyed in each of the Museum’s six galleries.
Tickets can be bought at the door or online at www.newportcarmuseum.org where more information and directions are available. Regular admission: $18/adults; $15/Seniors, Military, Students; $8/Ages 5-15 (with an adult); Free/Ages 4 and under (with an adult).
We look forward to your visit!
