Forget the tie as a gift on Father’s Day and take your special guy to theNewport Car Museum instead! All Dads get in FREE this Sunday when accompanied by a family member. And on Saturday, there’s a special “Hoods Up” session from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Allow yourself about 90 minutes to enjoy all that Newport Car Museum offers. Separate exhibits for Ford Shelbys, Corvettes, World Cars, Fin Cars and Chrysler Mopars have been carefully curated to appeal not only to grandfathers, fathers and teenage sons but also to men and women of all ages. A collection of Mid-Century modern furniture – by iconic designers such as Americans Charles and Ray Eames and Florence Knoll Bassett, and Denmark’s Arne Jacobsen and Hans Wegner – has been integrated into the artistic stylings of the museum, while six driving simulators await those wanting to test their skills on the toughest raceways and road courses in the world.
Newport Car Museum is in a 114,000 sq. ft. building located on 17 acres at the Raytheon Company campus in Portsmouth, R.I. It is handicap accessible and hours are daily, Monday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets can be bought at the door or online at www.newportcarmuseum.org where more information and directions are available.
