Snowmobiles have been making transportation over the snow easier for decades — or, if you count adapted automobiles with tracks as a snowmachine, for more than a century. These six museums are home to many historic models!
The Frontier Auto Museum is absolutely amazing — step back to 1950s and ’60s cars, a stocked auto garage, toys, petroleum collectibles, and more.
Take a tour of the USS Kidd, docked in Baton Rouge, LA, to celebrate Navy Day. Go through the battleship to see torpedoes, gun decks, living quarters, etc.
