Dick's Classic Garage Car Museum

Do you remember your first car date? Was it your dad’s Chevrolet, an old clunker, or a hot muscle car? 

Americans fell in love in and with the car industry, and Dick’s Classic Garage Car Museum salutes that love affair right here in San Marcos. A subsidiary of The Central Texas Museum of Automotive History, Dick’s Classic Garage Car Museum opened in 2009.

The 43,000 square foot facility operates as a non-profit, educational foundation.  Industrialist Dick Burdick’s collection traces the development of the automobile and its effect on the social and economic climate of much of the world between 1929 and 1959. 

The museum houses 80 classic cars, which are rotated periodically.  Along with these outstanding automobiles, Dick’s Classic Garage has a unique gift shop and a conference center available for special events.
