“Cars move kids through life” They start as our passengers and will soon be… our drivers… engineers… designers… mechanics… our future!
SAM's Garage is a place where children learn about cars while gearing up for life.
Programs at SAM's Garage encourage non-traditional, multigenerational learning opportunities for underserved children utilizing historic automobiles. The goal is to help students increase their understanding and proficiency in math, science and history, while helping them to improve their desire to stay in school, develop strong leadership skills and healthy community relationships. Previous projects include the restoration of the iconic Ford Model TT Popcorn Wagon seen at many of the Museum’s summer auto and lawn shows, and a Model A Huckster built from scratch.
The Museum has also served as a host for the Pinewood Derby with local Cub Scouts, provides an education area inside the museum where students can learn about cars and racing and during the Holidays, welcomed Santa Claus to its garage.
The mission of the Saratoga Automobile Museum is to preserve, interpret and exhibit automobiles and automotive artifacts.
