Chrysler Museum to close Dec. 18

November 18, 2016
 The Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Mich., will close permanently next month, officials said Nov. 10. The museum, which first closed in 2012 after not being able to cover costs, was reopened in June to the public on alternating weekends. But Chrysler made the decision to shutter it altogether after its final day of operation on Dec. 18.
FCA reportedly needs more office space, and the company decided to convert the museum for that purpose. The cars will be moved to storage after the closure, and they’ll be shown at various events. However, they’ll only be able to be seen together for two more days: Dec. 17 and 18. The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on those days.
The museum has some fantastic cars including concepts from the 1950s to the 2000s, oddball performance vehicles such as the Omni GLH-S, and of course plenty of fascinating history. There’s even a purple Plymouth Prowler that visitors can sit in.
