As part of our Summer Travel Adventure, we wanted to stop and visit different things. We were only in Effingham, Illinois for a day and a half, stayed at the Holiday Inn, but I was able to find some fun things to do on the VisitEffinghamIl.com website. One of those things was to visit the Mid America Motorworks My Garage Corvette Museum.
While traveling, we always look for fun things to do and cost little or no money. The My Garage Corvette Museum is FREE! It doesn’t get any better than that. It’s really a pretty neat place.
It’s located right next to the Mid America Motorworks building. On the way in, I noticed the street signs all have to do with Corvettes. Then there is an old fashioned gas station, (not real of course) with old fashioned gas pumps. We stopped and took a bunch of pictures, just like tourists do.
Next, we headed in the Corvette Museum. The Corvettes were awesome. We actually thought there were going to be more, but that was okay, because we didn’t want to spend all day there. We spent about an hour checking out all the cars.
Corvette’s weren’t the only thing there though. They also had VW’s and old war vehicles there too, besides a gift shop.
Where else can you see a Corvette worth 1.2 million? That is one you definitely do not want to touch!
I was glad we weren’t in a hurry on this trip, because normally we would just drive through in a hurry to get we are going. But even if you are just passing through Effingham, Illinois, take an hour out of your trip to stop and check it out.
For other things to do, including visiting The Harley Barn, visit the Effingham Convention and Visitors Bureau website. Mid America Motorworks is located at 17082 N US Highway 45
