The Allure of the Automobile will bring 16 of the world’s most luxurious, rare, and brilliantly conceived automobiles to the galleries of the Museum. From the avant-garde 1937 Hispano-Suiza owned by French apéritif baron André Dubonnet to the ultra-cool convertible 1957 Jaguar XK-SS roadster once owned by Hollywood legend Steve McQueen, the exhibition spans the 1930s to the 1960s and showcases developments in automotive design and engineering.
The exhibition experience is enhanced with an audio tour featuring Jay Leno. Download the free app on iTunes or rent an iPod touch at the Museum. Tickets are timed for entry every 30 minutes and may be reserved in advance at the Museum box office or online at portlandartmuseum.org.
