Lane Motor Museum to Open Video Game Exhibit

Come see your favorite video game cars firsthand and watch actual gameplay clips from the biggest titles.

Lane Motor Museum is set to open three new major exhibits this year. The first to open, First Person Fantasies: Video Game Cars, highlights vehicles from the museum’s vast collection that have appeared in numerous video games. The exhibit opens on January 25, 2024, and runs through January 27, 2025.

Video games allow people to experience things they often can’t in the real world. Say, for example, driving some of the rare and unique vehicles in Lane Motor Museum’s collection.

“First Person Fantasies is an incredible opportunity for the museum to connect the ever-expanding virtual world of automobiles to the tangible, real-world vehicles that are utilized to develop their digital counterparts which allow younger generations exposure to rare vehicles they may not otherwise know exist in the automotive world,” says Derek E. Moore, Curator of Collections at Lane Motor Museum.

That fantasy can be played out virtually through video games. Several of the museum’s cars are featured in racing and driving games. Lane Motor Museum will exhibit the most well-known video game cars from their collection, from the tiny Peel P-50 to Group B rally cars like the MG Metro 6R4.
