Mother's Day at the Murphy

Sunday, May 8, 2016

We love Mom. What special treat do you have planned for her this year? (PSSSST-bring Mom to The Murphy on this day and we will give her a red rose and let her in for free). After all, everyone knows Mom means Mom Overjoyed @ The Murphy.

Doesn’t every Mom want to spend time with her family in a place where there is something for everyone? You know, cars for the Dad, tri-counties largest train layout for the Kids and, during this month, a Vintage Trailer exhibit for Mom to enjoy. She’ll be thanking you for months to come and probably make your favorite meal that night. Gee, thanks Mom.


Father's Day at the Murphy

Sunday, June 19, 2016

We love Dad. What special treat do you have planned for him this year? Not another tie or a jar of mixed nuts! In the old days, you could ask him to give you some money and you would go to the store and buy him a pack of smokes and say “Happy Father’s Day, Dad!” Everyone was happy. Dad is onto you these days. That trick won’t work anymore plus, today’s Dad probably doesn’t smoke. So, get Dad and bring him to The Murphy.

We’ll let him in free as long as you’re coming with him and he will love looking at the Volkswagen exhibit, plus all of the super cool classic cars in the large showroom. Oh, and don’t forget to tell him we have a massive train display for his inner child.

The Murphy Auto Museum is celebrating Pickups & Station Wagons, some of the greatest contributions that Detroit gave the American motoring public. Pickup trucks and station wagons are uniquely American. No other country in the world has matched the their appeal and utility. The Italians gave the world sexy sports cars; the Japanese, fuel efficient economy cars and the Germans, high performance and luxurious highway cruisers. But only America produced pickups and station wagons better than anybody else.
