Last Summer, I was doing the usual…which is to say, getting lost in my own neighborhood and taking pictures on the weekend, when I stumbled upon the Wagner-Hagans Auto Museum. A man sitting in a classic car across the street from the windowless and relatively signless (aside from reproduction auto service flash hanging just out front) building I was documenting got out of the car and approached me; I couldn’t believe my luck. Not only did the man inform me that there was a vintage auto collection inside, but he was one of the owners and was also happy to open it up for a tour! It’s small and lovely and you’d barely even know these whips were sitting pretty on this quiet end of town. The bite-sized display is perfect for those who know their automobiles as well as the simple nostalgia hound who loves road trips, but couldn’t change the oil to save their life.
476 E. Kossuth Ave., Columbus, Ohio
Admission to the museum is free. Appointments may be made by calling Mark Hagans at 614-554-5879 or Steve Wagner at 271-0888.
This post is a branch-off of a Columbus, Ohio City Guide I recently put together for Designer, Blogger and all-around fantastic gal, Allison Lehman. I’m a fan of anything Allie shares…please check out her blog and all of the other city guides at Be Up and Doing!
