TREMONT — The Seal Cove Auto Museum will be free and open to the public for a special family event on Saturday, Jan. 24, from 6-8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served as families stroll through the museum, see our two newest additions to this rare and beautiful collection and play games.
Guests will have the opportunity to view the museum’s unique Brass Era collection of automobiles from the turn of the last century free of charge and without the summer crowds. There will be games for the youngsters and activities for the whole family to enjoy, including Lego’s, scavenger hunts and hands-on activities.
Families that attend this program will also get a sneak-peak at the museum’s new acquisition, a 1904 Searchmont Touring car, before the museum officially opens for the season in the spring. The Searchmont is a true ‘barn find’ that was lovingly restored by a previous owner. It is one of only two vehicles manufactured by the Searchmont Automobile Co. known to exist. The car is one of four vehicles on display at the museum that have participated in the London-to-Brighton race, which features cars made before 1905.
The Seal Cove Auto Museum has won back-to-back Trip Advisor Awards of Excellence, and is a popular destination over the summer months.
The mission of the Seal Cove Auto Museum is to tell the story of innovation and ingenuity in New England and America through the early development of the automobile. The museum is open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., from May 1 to Oct. 31, and offers programs and events throughout the winter.
