Savoy Automobile Museum

The Savoy Auto Museum in Cartersville, Georgia 

Back when Miles Through Time Automotive Museum was located in Toccoa, Georgia, the executives from the future Savoy Automobile Museum came to visit.  Much like MTT’s founder Sean Mathis, the executives of Savoy, Macra Adair, and Tom Shinall spent a lot of time researching and touring great automotive museums around the country.  They were even able to use the Automotive Museum Guide to help plan their trips.

Both Macra and Tom came back out to Miles Through Time when the museum was moved to its new location in Clarkesville, Georgia. By then construction on the new Savoy Automobile Museum had already begun.

About Savoy Auto Museum

Unlike Miles Through Time Automotive Museum which is a co-op style “living” museum that changes frequently based on vehicles being loaned or donated to the museum; Savoy owns an impressive collection of vehicles and rotates its collection onto the museum floor quarterly.

Both museums may have different methods of changing the vehicles on display, but in either case, you’ll want to keep going back just to see what’s changed.

Where is Savoy? 

Savoy is located in Carterville, Georgia which is directly north of Atlanta and west of  Clarkesville. You could tour both Savoy and Miles Through Time in one day since the two museums are only two hours away from each other.

Who Owns Savoy Museum? 

Savoy is a part of the Georgia Museums Inc. and is a sister museum to the Booth Western Art Museum, Bartow History Museum, and Tellus Science Museum. All of these museums aren’t far from each other and the Tellus Science Museum even has its own small collection of vehicles on display. The Booth Western Art Museum is also a neat place to visit for the art aficionado.

Although Savoy is a new automotive museum in Georgia, the building, grounds, and collection of vehicles are nothing short of outstanding. Even the story behind the name of the museum is interesting and was chosen as the museum’s name after finding an old Plymouth Savoy car on the property which now sits outside the building.

How to get to the savoy

You can travel between Savoy and Miles Through Time in one of two ways.  You have the back roads option, that will keep you off the highway and enable you to pass through small towns. Or you have the option to take the highway the entire way.  Although the highway may seem appealing, traffic may become an issue through the Atlanta metro depending on the time of day.

Savoy Automobile Museum Reviews 

Very pleasing architecture. Tremendous building with vast space and potential. The vehicles on display were unique, interesting and very satisfying to examine! All of the staff except for one guy was friendly. I almost took a star away because of him. But I do not want to deter anybody from visiting this location. If you’re a car buff I definitely recommend checking out this place. Only $15 to get in is a great deal for the experience. Looking forward to see how they develop this Museum. – Joseph Lambert

Beautiful museum! Visited with out-of-town company and we both thoroughly enjoyed! We got there just after opening hour and had No Wait. The facility is spotlessly immaculate, light & airy, which adds to viewing the displayed autos. Those vehicles are arranged with plenty of room to walk all the way around, and get right up next to (but don”t touch! 🙂). Beautiful collection of classic cars as well as some unique examples I had never seen before. My personal favorite was the ’48 Tucker! Gorgeous vehicle!! I Will be coming back, bringing other family members who have expressed interest. I Know they will not be disappointed! – Frank Knowles

We drove out to Savoy Automobile Museum which is only an hour away from where we live. We signed up for the annual membership as it’s good for a year, gets you a discount at their cafe, and a discount at the souvenir store. Very affordable museum. The selection of cars to view was very good, the cars were all very nice. I highly recommend taking the time to visit this automobile museum. – Jeremy Ayers
