About the Company

The R.E. Olds Transportation Museum opened to the public on May 18, 1981, at its present location. The only museum in the world displaying a significant collection of Oldsmobile and REO automobiles, trucks, and memorabilia, the Museum has thousands of irreplaceable items in the archives along with over 65 rotating vehicles that range from 1886 through 2003. Equally important, the Museum tells the story of Ransom E. Olds’s contributions to the transportation industry in Lansing, and across the country.
