From introducing the freedom to live and explore beyond urban city centers to infusing a new sense of consumer idealism, The Institute offers unparalleled access to a mint collection of rare automobile treasures and related objects and artifacts that changed the course of history.
“Every new development, highway, railroad, steamship line, building operation, whether it be a drainage project in old Greece or a new water system in Peru, means an added use of the automobile.”Walter Chrysler
An Emblematic Collection
The Revs Institute values the importance of preserving automobiles in their original, untouched and patinaed state. With few deliberately considered exceptions, the more than 100 automobiles in the collection, which is divided into four thematic galleries: Automobility, Vitesse, Revs and Porsche are fully operational and displayed free of protective barriers allowing visitors the most intimate access.
Making the Most of Your Visit
A guided tour led by one of our docents is the best way to explore The Institute’s sprawling exhibit space. These guided tours take a minimum of 2 hours to complete and can be tailored to accommodate visitors’ interests and scheduling requirements when confirmed in advance. More about our docents.
A Distinctive Venue
The Revs Institute is housed in a three story, 80,000 square foot building in sunny Naples, Florida. As stewards of some of the rarest automobiles and sports cars in the world, The Institute has taken extraordinary steps to ensure its collection remains viable for generations to come. Not only is the building pressurized but the air is twice filtered to minimize dust and other possibly harmful contaminants.
