Revs Institute in Naples, Florida is a feast of the imagination for any automotive enthusiast. The museum provides an unprecedented window into the rapid culture shift that the automobile sparked over the course of the 20th century.
As you explore 80,000 square feet and three stories of living history, you will discover a mint collection of rare automobile treasures and related objects and artifacts that changed the course of human history. Within the Miles Collier Collections, you can see more than 100 automobiles that are divided into four thematic galleries: Automobility, Vitesse, Revs, and Porsche. The automobiles are fully operational and displayed free of protective barriers, allowing visitors intimate access.
The Revs Institute values the importance of preserving automobiles in their original, untouched and patinated state. As stewards of some of the rarest automobiles in the world, we have taken extraordinary steps to ensure the collection remains viable for generations to come. Not only is the building pressurized, but the air is twice-filtered to minimize contaminants.
All tickets must be purchased in advance. Explore the galleries at your own pace, with Volunteers strategically placed throughout the museum to answer your questions
This is a very rare document from 1896. At the time the term automobile had not been coined, you will notice they refer to them as Locomotives.
This document is extraordinarily significant to motoring in Britain. It freed British motorists from having to have a man walking in front to warn of their approach (the Red Flag Man), upped the speed limit from 4 mph to 14 mph - but local councils mostly instantly reduced it to 12 mph - and was the reason why Harry Lawson's Motor Car Club organized the Emancipation Day run to Brighton when the Act came into force on November 14, 1896. Which is why we've been celebrating the freedom of the roads with the Brighton Run in November since 1927.View the full document
