Here's one more for the list, Luke: http://www.louwmanmuseum.nl/asp/appmain.asp?appactie=museum&taalcd=en&menutype=s ub

Saw it on Barry Maguiar's "Car Crazy" tonight. It just opened, and claims to be the largest private car museum in the world with 230 cars. Pieter (sp?) Louwman started importing Dodges in 1915, and he and now his son have been collecting old cars since 1934. They have Model A s/n 80, and a 1924 Tudor, which they obtained way back in 1935. Their description of the T is a little snarky.

You will find an amazing variety of cars on the site, and many rare examples.

It's time for a road trip to The Hague...

For you new in the last couple of years, I started a list of museums with at least one T, from those I had visited, and with contributions from this Forum. Luke Dahlinger took it over and has it on his site.

If you think that's snarky, you'd probably pass out on the description of the 1914 Dodge. It was the first car in the collection, and the description practically worships the car. The museum founder, after all, was a Dodge distributor.

I think the Harold LeMay collection of Tacoma may be the largest in the world, though they don't tout it on the website. http://www.lemaymuseum.org/page.php?id=64

Jay Leno, with his unlimited income, his deep passion for vintage cars of all types and his constant, unending searches for interesting cars for his collection, is probably well on his way to acquiring the largest, finest and most diversified and most valuable classic car collection in the world.

Luke, I haven't visited your site so don't know if this one is listed or not. I had occasion to visit the Montana Frontier Prison in Deer Lodge last August, they have a number of Fords including some nice Brass T's and one Model S.

I went to the museum in 1983 when it was called the Towe-Ford. I was fifteen at the time and our family vacation included the Lewis and Clark caves and Virginia City. I took lots of photos - it was a fun experience for my dad, my brothers and I. Mom was probably bored out of her mind.

Here's one in Finland I visited about 15 years ago. It is filled with old cars and old radios. Somewhere between Tampere and Turku.

Here is a great museum in an out of the way spot. It's run by J.D. VanHorn and this last fall he was putting in a campground by the museum. It is probabaly 60-70 miles south of I-94 from either Wibaux MT or Dickenson ND.

Lukes website: http://vintagefordfacts.blogspot.com/

Since the Hague is in Netherlands in Europe the list are apparently extending beyond the US?

Then I can add:
Egeskov slot (Egeskov castle):http://www.egeskov.dk/en/node/378

Danmarks Tekniske Museum (Technical Museum of Denmark): http://www.tekniskmuseum.dk/ (unfortunately only in danish)

Jysk automobilmuseum: http://www.jyskautomobilmuseum.dk/Interi%C3%B8rbilleder.htm

All three have at least 1 Model T in their collections or on display

Our museum here in Victoria has a brass T in it, replete with it's own garage, and period streets. I like to think the rest was built, just to make it feel at home.

Just south of Interstate 10, a few miles east of Talahassee, FL is a museum of all things.

It seems the owner made his fortune building and operating mini-storage facilities. He collected almost anything you can think of, from autos to outboard motors to dolls to golf clubs, and on and on and on.

Among over 100 cars, he has at least one (maybe two) Model T's. he has two of the Batmobiles used to make the movies. He has the carriage that Abe Lincoln's casket was carried in. You get the picture.

The collection got so big he built a huge new building, two stories, and it still doesn't have everything on display.

If you're traveling in those parts, it's WELL worth a half-day stop.

The Museum of Science and Industry, in Chicago, has an "old-time street" with reproductions of store fronts. There is a Model T there.

On the eastern side of Jackson, Mississippi there is a whole re-created old-time community. There is also a museum building, and there is a Model T there.

Peter;
That Museum east of Talahassee, Fl.is one of the best, with the exception of the Henry Ford Museum, that I have ever seen.
