The museum is funky and small (and free and air conditioned), making it just right for us.

Guests of all ages can get an up-close look at about 5 vehicles (that change every few months). The only trick is… no touching!

There is no parking lot at the museum and there are a few parallel parking spots on Heights Boulevard.

A visit takes about 20 minutes for us and is always a hit with my kids.

    Are there any good, kid-friendly, inexpensive restaurants around? Want to put this up on our playgroup calendar, but it’s far for most so lunch afterwards will be nice.

      I wish Mission Burrito or Natachee’s was closer to the Art Car Museum because they are my “go-to” spots. Still, there are a lot of options in the Heights. http://goo.gl/maps/88n6w If you go south on Heights and east on Washington, there is Star Pizza. Or if you go south on Heights until you pass Dallas, there is a Lubys. Or, in this same area, is the Montrose Whole Foods. http://goo.gl/maps/A4FFZ You could grab food and have a little picnic here.

      Let me know if this helps. Also, let me know if I can make any other playdate suggestions. 🙂

        Thanks for the suggestions. Star Pizza is perfect! The moms will appreciate the pizza & salad buffet
