I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Vintage Automobile of Museum of New Jersey

What: Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey

Where:1800 Bay Ave., Ste. 13
            Point Pleasant, NJ

Who: All ages

The Vintage Automobile  Museum is not just about cars. You can also find other objects from the past there like an old jukebox and an old gas pump. The cars are not just confined to full-sized automobiles either. There is a full selection of toy cars of all shapes and sizes. Of course, if you are interested in full-sized cars, they have do have an incredible collection of gorgeous mint condition vintage automobiles. 

The museum is small, although jampacked with cars and other interesting objects, and the collection is large. There is not enough room for everything to be on display at once. Accordingly, the museum hosts a series of rotating exhibits that change every two months or so. 

The current exhibit revolves around life in different decades from the 1910s to the 1980s (except for some reason the 1970s is missing). There are cars and other objects related to each decade. There are also posters with pictures related to the decade as well as information about the decade including the average cost of such objects as a house, a tank of gas, and a loaf of bread as well as popular slang words, and books of the decade, and other fascinating information.  All in all, it is a really appealing museum that anyone can enjoy even if they aren't necessarily crazy about cars.

Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
