Upcoming Programs: 

  • Behind the Steam: Luxurious Packards, April 15 at 7 pm
    • “Ask the Man Who Owns One” is the iconic phrase associated with the Packard brand. Discover the history and highlights of rare and interesting Packards in this joint program between the Gilmore Car Museum and the Marshall Steam Museum.
  • Behind the Steam: Wedding Bells, June 17 at 7 pm 
    • What were weddings like at the beginning of the 20th century? Learn about the traditions of these early weddings through the lens of Clarence and Esther Marshall. The Marshalls, who would have celebrated their 100th anniversary this month, left behind incredible artifacts related to their wedding, including a slice of their cake! This program is done in partnership with the Auburn Valley State Park.
