Each year, automobile museums organize many temporary exhibitions, often open for several months. These exhibits can complement the permanent exhibition by grouping new cars around a particular theme, or focus on a theme, or celebrate an anniversary. These exhibitions also renew the interest of the visitor who returns to see a museum, or attract new visitors interested in the theme presented

On this page you will find current and past exhibitions organized by automotive museums or other places of automotive passion. The articles are listed in order of publication, the most recent at the beginning of the page which can give you an idea of the exhibitions still in progress at the time of your consultation. Click on the link or image for more information about the exhibition.

Automobile Museums does not claim to reference all temporary exhibitions presented by automobile museums. They also organize many activities: gatherings, parts exchanges, regular activities, discovery visits… which you will find some on the Events page of the site. Do not hesitate to visit the museum’s websites to discover more.
