Piccadilly Museum of Transportation

Signs, signs, everywhere highway signs

If you remember the old TV show Route 66 fondly, you’ll lose yourself in the Piccadilly. Set in yet another historic red-brick landmark – the 1892 Christie’s building — the museum’s primary emphasis is vintage cars. Yet anything and everything related to other-era highway driving in the United States is on display here.

The museum’s exhibits are a tribute to a Nevada native named Roy Alan Carson, an obsessive collector of license plates and other transportation-related memorabilia who is said to have driven in all 3,800 counties in the United States. The road signs and license plates date to the 1920s and have a distinctive 1940s-60s flair. It’s the place to roam if you’re a car buff, but call ahead to make sure the Piccadilly is open – like many such Montana businesses, they’re casual about their schedule.
