Revs Institute is excited to welcome conference attendees to explore the museum, library, and archive. Revs Institute will offer tours of the museum as well as behind-the-scenes tours of areas that visitors do not usually 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 have the chance to view the four galleries at Revs Institute. As you explore 80,000 square feet and three stories of living history, you will discover a mint collection of rare automobile treasures and related objects and artifacts that changed the course of human history. Within the Miles Collier Collections, you can see 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 intimate access.
It’s not easy maintaining one of the finest auto collections in the world. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the remarkable workshop and learn how craftsmen work in specialized leather, metal, paint, and wood shops. Also see how the parts department manages inventory control for tens of thousands of items. Please note, the Parts portion of this tour is only accessible by stairs. Maximum of 20 people per tour.
Take a behind-the-scenes tour and see how Revs Institute integrates inventory control, arrangement and description, digitization, metadata, and more to provide a fully integrated library for patrons worldwide.
