Stroll through the Tupelo Automobile Museum and you'll literally walk a timeline that spans more than 120 years.

This 120,000-square-foot showroom features more than 100 antique, classic and collectible cars, all chronologically displayed to illustrate the progress of automobile design and engineering. The collection is valued at more than $6 million and includes vehicles once owned by celebrities including Elvis Presley.

Visitors can also peek in on ongoing vehicle restorations to see how volunteers and museum staff make old cars look brand new. This car collection, like many others, began as a private endeavor. The museum opened in 2002 and less than a year later was designated the “official State of Mississippi automobile museum.”
