This museum preserves and celebrates Kenosha’s automotive and industrial heritage. Every year the Kenosha History Center changes its display space in the Rambler Legacy Gallery to tell a different story about Kenosha auto-manufacturing.

On display in 2020:

The AMC Design Studio features two clay concept models by a team of former AMC designers including Vince Geraci, Frank Pascoe, Bob Bristow, and the late Keith Goodnough. Imagine an AMC Marlin designed for the 2000s. The exhibit takes a look at the design side of Kenosha's automotive history.

The Kenosha Engine exhibit is the museum’s first dedicated exhibit on the impact of engine manufacturing in Kenosha, from Jeffery to Chrysler. The engine plant was the last vestige of Kenosha's rich automotive history, and generous donations of artifacts, photographs, and textual materials from UAW Local 72 have allowed the museum to give Kenosha's engines a worthy treatment.

A pair of rare Kenosha automobiles, including a 1948 Nash Pickup - they didn't make many - and the one-of-a-kind 1972 Gremlin "Voyageur". The museum staff is very thankful to their friends in the Nash and AMC community for allowing them to show such rare vehicles.

Free admission; donations appreciated.
