Revs Institute is delighted to welcome conference attendees to explore the museum, library, and archives. Revs Institute will offer tours of the museum, as well as behind-the-scenes tours of areas that visitors usually do not see. Attendees interested in exploring Revs Institute’s workshop and library must reserve their spot on a tour while registering for the conference, as there is limited space on each tour. Each tour of a specific area will be offered more than once during the conference. Please note, certain areas of these behind-the-scenes tours are only accessible by stairs.
Guests will be able to view the four galleries at Revs Institute. As you explore 80,000 square feet and three stories of exhibits, you will discover an exceptional collection of rare automobile treasures, related objects and artifacts that changed the course of history. Within Miles Collier Collections, there are more than 100 automobiles that are divided into four thematic galleries: Automobility, Vitesse, Revs, and Porsche. The automobiles are fully operational and displayed free of protective barriers, allowing visitors unobstructed access.
Maintaining one of the finest auto collections in the world is a skilled and painstaking pursuit. You will be welcome to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the remarkable workshop and learn how craftsmen work in specialized leather, metal, paint, and wood. You are also welcome to see how the parts department manages inventory control for tens of thousands of items. Please note, the Parts tour is only accessible by stairs. Maximum of 20 people per tour.
