Model T Museum in Richmond, Indiana

Richmond, Indiana, is right off the highway I-70, east of Indianapolis, near Ohio and Indiana border. During our stay in Indiana we discovered there is a lot to see in Richmond!

We met our Indiana friends at the Model T Museum. It's a small, but wonderful museum. Especially all my boys (including the Captain) enjoyed it. I have to admit I was a little preoccupied visiting with my friend, but I, too, enjoyed walking around and seeing these old beauties.

The museum is located in downtown Richmond, Indiana, in the Depot District. There were a lot of cool buildings nearby. The museum has a small admission fee ($3/adult, under 12 free), and they were open on Sunday until 5 pm.

Loved the paintings on the buildings!

The museum is pretty much a one room museum, but it was packed. It is ranked #1 Richmond attraction on Tripadvisor.

We found these snowmobiles fascinating! They sure have come a long way...

This old firetruck was a gorgeous!

Lucky us (another blessing on this trip!), as we arrived at the museum, all these Model Ts started driving in! Turns out there was a club meeting that night! We thought the parking lot was just as interesting as the little museum!

Off they go, to have dinner.

Making a stop-over at the Model T Museum sure is worth it. Afterward, go have dinner at Clara's Pizza King!


  1. Hi Sennie! What a funny coincidence, Ari and I visited yesterday a car museum in Kangasala and saw, among the others, a couple of Model T Fords from the 1920's :-) They sure do have rather more personality than the modern cars. And I just have to tell you that it's an education in itself to read your blog posts - and see your photos - about your travels around the USA - there is obviously no end to interesting and marvellous things to see there! I bet your kids learn WAY more about their home country than the average American kids sitting in classrooms do.

    With blessing from Finland,

  2. Eikös, isä!!??

    Heli, I agree!!! We all learn so much in our travels, it truly has been incredible these last few years. Thank you<3

  3. Well I left a comment earlier, but I don't know what happened to it. Anyway, that was a great afternoon! I didn't even see the mural of the firefighters!! Your pictures turned out great, as usual and I'm so bummed I didn't see the Chinese sign!! Oh well, we'll have to go back some time.
