Description

The Jacksonville Automotive Museum, a 501(c)3 Educational Not For Profit organization is the first of its' kind on the First Coast, bringing a World Class automotive experience to Jacksonville!

JAM will house Classic, Exotic, Hot Rod, Racing and Unique Cars, Trucks and even Military vehicles all for the enjoyment of the general public. With hundreds of collectible and unique cars ready to be displayed, JAM will have something for every automotive enthusiast.

JAM offers a complete new attraction to the First Coast visitor that is family friendly, interactive and affordable. JAM will also feature visiting displays from collectors from all parts of the world, cars that a visitor may only ever get to see once in a lifetime. The fact that there is no other major automotive museum in the entire region allows for many collectors to choose to display their priceless automotive collections in Jacksonville before taking them to auctions or after displaying them at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.

JAM will devote a section of the Museum to the most interesting new cars of our time, displaying the current technology and allowing visitors to sit in the driver seat to learn more about the features that have just come to market.

    We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
