Curatorial Spotlight. Technological Developments: The Very First Cars


On the second Sunday of each month, members of our curatorial department will offer unique insights into the different aspects of the Museum through interesting and thought-provoking presentations and demonstrations.

Join us on Sunday, October 10, 2021 for the first of a three-part series exploring the major technological developments created throughout the history of the automotive industry. In the first part, we will focus on the very first cars developed. Our professional museum staff will deliver a presentation and be on hand to answer all your questions regarding the subject. In 1908, Henry Ford began mass production of the Model T automobile, thereby introducing automobiles to the public at large. However, the story of the first automobiles dates much further back.  In this presentation, we will dive in to the story of the very first automobiles created.

This presentation is free to all members of the public with a regular museum admission and will take place in the Education Center at the Museum. For more information please contact the museum by phone at (260) 925-1444 or email at
