Sarasota Classic Car Museum
The Sarasota Classic Car Museum is the second oldest continuously operated car museum in the country. It was founded by brothers Herbert and Bob Horn in 1953, who moved to Sarasota from Iowa. The museum holds over 75 classic cars made by all of the major car manufacturers. Highlights include John Lennon's 1965 Mercedes Benz, Paul McCartney's Mini Cooper, and a replica of Abraham Lincoln's funeral carriage. The museum's mission is not only to preserve classic cars but to also educate visitors about the history of the automotive industry.
