Toledo's Automotive History: Providing the Spark to Move a Nation

Since the birth of the automotive industry, Toledo, Ohio has been a major contributor to the development and production of the automobile. See the development of the automobile through the histories of the companies that produced them and the men and women who assembled them. From Pierre Gendron’s wire spoked wheel to the Toledo Steamer, from Pope to Willys-Overland, the Stranahan brothers’ Champion Spark Plug, Electric Auto-lite, Spicer-Dana, Libbey-Owens-Ford's safety glass windshields, the Milburn Electric, and the world-famous Jeep; Toledo, Ohio made its mark in the auto industry. Join THM this summer for a glimpse into Toledo’s rich manufacturing and automotive past.

The exhibit runs from July 31st until November 5th. Admission to the museum is free.  The museum is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5 and will also be open Friday, August 6th from 4-8 pm, the night before Toledo Jeep Fest 2021 kicks off.
