WHAT CAN YOU SEE AT THE MUSEUM?

A majority of the vehicles displayed are owned by the Pierce-Arrow Foundation, and most of these are permanent exhibits. The remaining exhibits are loaned by their owners, and these are from time to time rotated.

MOTORCARS AND TRUCKS

About 16 significant Pierce-Arrow passenger cars, covering the full range of production years from 1903 to 1938, are always on display. Most of these have been completely restored to original condition, and show Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company products at their very best. From time to time there are vehicles exhibited in unrestored condition, showing how well Pierce products have held up over three quarters of a century since production ceased.

BICYCLES AND MOTORCYCLES

Representative examples of Pierce-Arrow two-wheeled vehicles may be seen. The very limited number of surviving bicycles and motorcycles makes each of these exhibits a significant rarity.

ARTIFACTS

A number of interesting items are exhibited which are connected with the design, development and production of Pierce-Arrows.

Engines and other vehicle parts displayed provide an opportunity to look closely at components that are hard to examine in a complete vehicle because they are under the hood or chassis.

A number of interesting documents and other ephemera pertaining the Pierce-Arrow and the Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company are also displayed.

ADVERTISEMENTS AND ART

For its promotional campaigns, Pierce-Arrow commissioned
a number of quite artistic paintings by prominent artists.
These appeared in full page advertisements during the first
part of the Company’s existence. Later advertisements
included new paintings of current product offerings with
vignette reproductions of earlier paintings.

 A number of examples of this art and the advertisements
are displayed in the museum.
