This economy is not kind to the small car museum. While all museums have been affected in the economic crunch it seems like museums that are given over to small and specific collections are especially vulnerable. We've seen other car museums face closure and now the Ark-La-Tex Antique and Classic Vehicle Museum in Shreveport, Louisiana will become the latest to shut down and auction off its inventory. There is not enough interest to maintain the museum.
It is currently closed but offers group tours for students and the elderly and will do so until the auction on June 6, at the museum, located at 601 Spring St. The building has also been put up for sale and is listed for $1.85 million. It was originally a miniature vehicle factory when it was built in 1927 and served as a car dealership and a nightclub before becoming a museum in the mid-1990s.
