Pedal Power! - Exhibit Opening

Pedal Power! will open on March 10, 2018. On display will be the personal pedal car collection of long-time State Farm executive Bruce Callis. This exhibit will feature dozens of child-sized autos which spans fifty years of pedal car production from the 1920s through the 1970s.

In addition to Bruce’s successful career and community involvement, he was an avid pedal car collector and restorer. His family has gifted 53 pedal cars from his personal collection to the Museum. One of the highlights of this exhibit is the original 75th Anniversary State Farm commemorative pedal car prototype. Discover who designed these popular toys and interact with these icons of childhoods past. Whether you remember these toys from your childhood or are discovering pedal cars for the first time, you will want to cruise down to the Museum and explore Pedal Power!
