The Northwest Vintage Car & Motorcycle Museum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of people who are interested in vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles. We are dedicated to providing a public facility for the preservation and display of automobiles and motorcycles from the past. The NWVCMM is an entirely volunteer, membership-owned Museum open to people of all ages, with or without a vehicle. We are a member of the Oregon Cultural Trust.
The mission of the Museum is to educate the general public about the heritage, history and evolution of automobiles and motorcycles older than twenty-five years. The Museum will support life-long learning and community involvement through activities which will generate interest, fundraising and a sense of camaraderie among its members and visitors.
We are located in the heart of the Willamette Valley near I-5 and exit 263 at 3995 Brooklake Rd NE in Brooks, Oregon at Antique Powerland which is comprised of 16 different museums where Oregon’s agricultural heritage comes to life.
Our Museum is open weekends from June to September. We hold two Northwest regional Car and Motorcycle Shows that attract many interesting vintage vehicles from the region. Our Car & Motorcycle Rendezvous will be held June 27, 2015 and it is open to vintage vehicles of all types. Our Annual Show & Swap Meet is open to all-comers and it will be held July 18, 2015. Whenever there is an event at Antique Powerland, we will have an open Car Show of vintage vehicles.
We would like to expand our Display Building by adding a two-story steel and concrete structure to the existing building to give us an additional 12,000 square feet. The first phase is to construct the exterior walls as well as lighting, heating, windows, doors and the second floor. The next phase will be to finish the interior with a theater, library, gift shop, bathrooms, and office space. The current Display Building will be freed up for a display area and functional museum space. The new section will give us room for groups to meet, hold banquets and host school field trips. Our immediate goal is to raise $250,000 for construction.
We are seeking contributions of money and like-kind donations, such as building materials to make this happen. An endowment fund will be established to receive donations for long-term support. All donations are tax deductible.
