Petit Jean State Park and Petit Jean Mountain information:

The Museum of Automobiles, located east of the main part of the Petit Jean State park on Petit Jean Mountain, includes a permanent collection of 30 automobiles donated by supporters from Arkansas and surrounding states.  The museum was founded in 1964 by the late Governor Winthrop Rockefeller, housing his collection of antique and classic automobiles until the collection was sold in 1975, with building and grounds donated to the Arkansas Department of Parks.  In 1976, a non-profit corporation was formed and reopened the museum with cars loaned from collectors around the country.  The national headquarters of the Mid-America Old Time Automobile Association is located in the museum.  The museum co-hosts with MOTAA in June the annual Petit Jean Antique Car Show and Swap Meet.  The museum also hosts a Fall Swap Meet and Military Vehicle Show.  Hours are 10 am to 5 pm daily.
