The Detroit Science Center has reached an agreement with the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America to bring a significant portion of the Hall’s collection of vehicles and displays to the Science Center.   The Hall was formerly located in the Novi Expo Center in Novi, Mich.

Cars, exhibits and other displays began arriving at the Detroit museum last week. Among them are Art Arfon’s “Green Monster Cyclops,” a Kenny Bernstein Funny Car and Sebastien Bourdais’ Championship Indy Car.

“The Detroit Science Center is the ideal location for the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America to call its new home,” said Hall of Fame President Ron Watson. “Both institutions seek to inspire and educate by showcasing technology and engineering. The vehicles in our collection are a testament to this shared mission.”

“We are honored to welcome the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America to the Detroit Science Center and to share its wonderful collection with our visitors,” said Detroit Science Center President & CEO Kevin F. Prihod.

Admission to the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America at the Detroit Science Center is included in Science Center museum admission.

The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America is operated by the Motorsports Museum and Hall of Fame of America Foundation, Inc.

Its collection features racers from the world of Indy cars, stock cars, Can Am, TransAm, sprint cars, powerboats, truck racing, drag racing, motorcycles, air racing, and even racing snowmobiles.

It also showcases exhibits and photographs of the personalities, manufacturers and machines of all kind of racing and their rich legacy.
