A must stop for antique car buffs is located just a few miles from downtown Asheville in the "Grovewood" complex behind Grove Park Inn, so there is much to see! Browse the impressive Grovewood Gallery, stroll through the garden with unique sculptures, tour The Homespun Museum, and visit with artists in Grovewood Studios.
The Estes-Winn Car Museum is free of charge; however, donations in the "Wishing Well" are greatly appreciated and go to benefit several non-profit organizations. See rare and vintage automobiles, as well as original horse-drawn carriages and Asheville's own American La France fire engine. The cars have been preserved in their mostly original and running condition.
Open April-December, Monday-Saturday 10 AM-5 PM, and Sunday 11 AM-5 PM. The museum is closed during the winter months of January-March. See more antique cars and a huge motorcycle collection at Wheels Through Time in Maggie Valley.
