When the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum (PPHM) opened its doors in 1933, it was a 12,500 square foot building. Since that time the museum has become the largest history museum in Texas with more than 285,000 square feet.

The Museum boasts more than two million artifacts in collections including transportation, archeology, early Texas and Southwestern art, textiles, and western heritage.

The transportation collection is proud to include one of the oldest Ford automobiles in existence: a 1903 Ford Model A serial #28. Automobiles are exhibited in a re-created car dealership, picnic scene, 50s diner and drive-in movie theater. Other items on exhibit are late 19th and early 20th bicycles and motorcycles as well as automobiles dating from the 1900s through 1960s. These vehicles are used to augment the story of motorized transportation and its role in American history.
