The Cleveland History Center proudly exhibits automotive perfection

Trust me. You seldom need an excuse to tour the Cleveland History Center (Crawford Auto and Aviation Museum) but just in case you do there is an extraordinary collection now on display. I am of course talking about the Ferrari cars now on display.

Ferrari’s tag line on Instagram is right to the point: “Italian excellence that makes the world dream.”

As stated in the museums e-mail: “The design and performance of Enzo Ferrari’s cars have been a hallmark of Italian design since the first Ferrari was built in 1947. While millions may dream of Ferrari, only a lucky few can actually own one because, since its inception, Ferrari has built only around 250,000 cars. Compare that with the 10.5 million cars sold in 2022 by the world’s leading carmaker (Toyota), and you’ll have a better appreciation of why every Ferrari is special. The Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum’s exhibit provides visitors with an up-close look at some of Enzo Ferrari's dream machines.”

In total, over a dozen prized chassis are on display in all of their sparkling and powerful glory. The exhibition is in partnership with The Ferrari Club of Cleveland and will be in place through March 30, 2023. Hours for the Cleveland History Center is: Thursdays 12 noon to 8:00 p.m. and Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is: Adults $15.00, Seniors $13.00, Veterans $12.00, College Students (with ID) $10.00, Children 3-12 $8.00, Children under 2 Free, WRHS Members Free and Active Military Free.

While there, be sure to check out all of the other wonder exhibits on display including: Fashion After Dark, The Carl and Louis Stokes Making History exhibit, “Cleveland Starts Here” film, Women and Politics, The Hanna/McKinney Mansions, The BMW Centennial Display, The Cleveland Air Races, The Street of Yesteryear, The original and functioning Euclid Beach Carousel as well as all of the various cars, trucks and airplanes on display in the upper and lower level. Come early and stay the day.
