GRAND RE-OPENING OF THE BMW CCA FOUNDATION MUSEUM AND DEDICATION OF OUR NEW FOUNDERS’ GARDEN
Friday, May 21, 2021, will be the FINAL day to see an exceptional collection of BMWs from the beginning to 1965, all in one place at the BMW CCA Foundation Museum. We have eighteen (18) rare cars- from the oldest known BMW in the U.S. to a 1965 3200CS. And four (4) motorcycles from 1927 to 1949.
And like all our major events, a bevy of beautiful Bimmers will fill our fields for your viewing pleasure. Many will enjoy the company of fellow owners who just like to hang together and enjoy each other’s company.
But it’s more than cars.
We will be dedicating a new Founders’ Garden to those who wish to remember a certain someone. And as part of that, bury a BMW time capsule for future generations to behold, along with introducing the new name for our museum.
There will be BMW events to partake in, should you wish to experience the world’s largest BMW plant or the best Performance Driving facility BMW offers.
You get the picture – it’s fun! And it doesn’t stop there…Please join us for this once-in-a-lifetime event! Here’s the schedule-

The safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers is critical. For indoor and outdoor portions of the event, masks and social distancing are required. For indoor portions of the event, we maintain smaller visitation groups to allow for social distancing and better photo opportunities. When you register, you will have to select a time slot for yourself/your group. If you don’t have a mask, we will be happy to provide one. Regretfully, we cannot allow anyone to enter the Museum without one.
Our restrooms are closed to the public, though we have provided temporary restrooms outside the building for your use.
Thank you for understanding, for helping us keep everyone safe.
