The Northwest Vintage Car & Motorcycle Museum is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of people who are interested in vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles. We are dedicated to providing a public facility for the preservation and display of automobiles and motorcycles from the past. The NWVCMM is an entirely volunteer, membership-owned Museum open to people of all ages, with or without a vehicle. We are a member of the Oregon Cultural Trust.
The mission of the Museum is to educate the general public about the heritage, history and evolution of automobiles and motorcycles older than twenty-five years. The Museum will support life-long learning and community involvement through activities which will generate interest, fundraising and a sense of camaraderie among its members and visitors.
We are located in the heart of the Willamette Valley near I-5 and exit 263 at 3995 Brooklake Rd NE in Brooks, Oregon at Powerland Heritage Park which is comprised of 16 different museums where Oregon’s agricultural heritage comes to life.
Our Museum is open weekends from June to September. We hold a Northwest regional Car and Motorcycle Show that attracts many interesting vintage vehicles from the region. It is open to vintage vehicles of all types. Whenever there is an event at Powerland Heritage Park, we will have an open Car Show of vintage vehicles.
We are expanding our Display Building by adding a two-story steel and concrete structure to the existing building to give us an additional 12,000 square feet. The first phase, which is nearly complete, is to construct the exterior walls as well as lighting, heating, windows, doors and the second floor. The next phase will be to finish the interior with a theater, library, gift shop, bathrooms, and office space. The current Display Building will be freed up for a display area and functional museum space. The new section will give us room for groups to meet, hold banquets and host school field trips. Our immediate goal is to raise $250,000 for construction.
We are seeking contributions of money and like-kind donations focusing on completion of the interior of the structure, including building materials, to make this happen. An endowment fund will be established to receive donations for long-term support. All donations are tax deductible.
