Polished chrome. Sparkling paint. Neon signs. Vintage cars. Hundreds of memories in the shape of an automobile. These are just some of the sights we will take in if you join your QC Plus 60 friends Wednesday, May 17, to tour the Volo Museum in Volo, Illinois. If you love old cars and enjoy a walk through the automotive treasures of the past, you won’t want to miss out on this day trip!
Volo Museum started as an 1800’s farmhouse in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. The primary business was a second-hand store. The owner had two sons, who grew up on the property. As they got older, they started tinkering with Model T’s, fixing them up and selling them. Their collection grew as fast as their reputation. Soon people started traveling to see their collection. Recognizing a business opportunity, the brothers started charging $1 admission and called it the Volo Auto Museum. Fast forward 60 years later and Volo Museum is now a world famous classic and modern collector car dealership selling over 1,200 cars a year with a museum hosting 45 exhibits and over 10,000 mechanical marvels that attracts over 250,000 people every year. The secondhand store is now an antique mall that has around 300 unique vendors and over seven miles of aisles!
This day tour includes the deluxe motorcoach accommodations, a plated lunch of your liking, and admission to the Volo Museum and Antique Mall. The cost is $140.
