Mustang Owner’s Museum Opens in Concord, North Carolina

While the world celebrated the Mustang’s 55th birthday on April 17th this year, enthusiasts came from around the country to gather in Concord, North Carolina. The very exciting birthday also marked the grand opening of the anxiously-awaited Mustang Owner’s Museum.

55 Years!

The museum’s opening coincided with the 55 Years of Mustang celebration taking place nearby at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The birthday kicked off the four-day weekend of events in the area, including a car show and open track event on Thursday. Unfortunately, bad weather on Friday rained on the birthday “parade,” but Saturday saw the Mustangs back on display, and making fun runs on Charlotte’s track. The weekend also included guest speakers, dinners, and, of course, a birthday party.

The event brought enthusiasts from all over the country, as well as Formula Drifter Justin Pawlak.

The Museum

But back to the museum itself! The Mustang Owner’s Museum is the first of its kind dedicated exclusively to the Ford Mustang and its history. The 40,000 square-foot building holds between 55 and 60 Mustangs, including classics, modified, racing, and rare specimens you won’t find just anywhere. According to the museum’s webpage, the idea behind the museum is to “show the automotive world the many reasons why the Mustang is one of the most popular ‘pony cars’ in the world,” and to highlight the Mustang’s unique ability to be customized and personalized extensively.

Over the weekend, guests were treated to a viewing of the all-new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, as well as the original 1964½ Mustang that had been on display at the New York World’s Fair in 1964. With continued support from Ford, Roush, the Mustang Club of America, and many others, visitors are given the rare opportunity to be surrounded by remarkable Mustangs that they might not ever have a chance to see on the street.

Display vehicles and exhibits will constantly change and evolve, giving visitors a reason to return year after year! Current exhibits include key moments in Mustang history, including the original introduction to the Ford Mustang in 1964, as well as an exhibit highlighting the “barn find” phenomenon. Rare Mustang memorabilia is showcased throughout the museum as well.

All the information on Mustang history that you could ever hope to find can be located in the Mustang Library, an archive that includes books, magazines, and everything in between. Mustang Icon videos are available for viewing, featuring on-screen interviews of the people responsible for the birth and growth of the Mustang.

Knowing full and well the level of enthusiasm that gearheads all over the globe show for the Mustang, the creators of the museum included a space for weddings to be held – yes, you can get married at the Mustang Owner’s Museum – as well as family reunions, car club happenings, private meetings, sales conferences, and more. A large designated parking area across the street from the museum is perfect for car shows and events.

The museum opened to the public on May 3rd, and is open seven days a week! Admission is only $10 for adults, with children under 15 free, and members gain free access. It is located at 21 Carpenter Court NW, Concord, North Carolina.
