    The Wisconsin Automotive Museum is the state's biggest auto museum that features an ever growing exhibition of vintage, classic autos and automotive relics like the Kissel, that had been built in the city from 1906 to 1931, with the most famous model being the "Speedster" that would be affectionately called the Gold Bug, and were owned by such great stars of the period as Amelia Earhart and Fatty Arbuckle. The other exhibits include; the museum's gift shop, an exhibit dedicated to the Nash, that had been manufactured in Kenosha in 1916, industrial and outboard engines that were made in Hartford from 1936 until 1992, an all-new exhibit area for the Hudson Essex Terraplane, outstanding automotive relics like license plates, signs, oil cans and spark plugs and more than 90 other rare treats like the Pierce-Arrows, Pontiacs, Reos, Fords, Chevrolets and Studebakers sitting in a marvelous art deco setting. The museum has just finished celebrating its 25th anniversary and is looking forward to many more years of car collecting and providing the finest automobiles from history to all those that come to the region for fun and excitement. The museum contains more than a hundred of these exemplary autos, of all kinds and from all years, as well as a magnificent 250 ton steam locomotive and Hugh Lionel train layout. The structure that house this fantastic collection was originally constructed as a cannery in 1905 and then had to be rebuilt after burning down in 1918, with numerous autos that had been produced in the state during the past century. The most notable was the Kissel Motor Car Company that had been founded in 1906 by Louis Kissel and his sons, William and George, who would produce about 30,000 custom built autos and then later, trucks, before having to cease production in 1931 because of financial hardships brought about by the Great Depression; and check out the company's most popular and luxurious model, a two-seater 1919 Speedster that was nicknamed the Gold Bug.
