Franklin Auto Museum is one of Tucson’s hidden treasures


The Franklin Auto Museum is one of Tucson’s little-known treasures. Founded by Tom Hubbard, the museum continues his collection of classic Franklin automobiles and provides an opportunity to learn about the company’s unique history.

Over the course of his life, Tucson native Tom Hubbard’s fascination with Franklin cars grew into one of the largest collections of luxury cars in the country.

In the museum is Mr. Hubbard’s entire automobile collection, an extensive library of Franklin Company research materials and his Aunt’s collection of native American artifacts.

Guests can walk and explore the grounds containing four buildings with differing architecture styles.

The museum is open from mid October to Memorial Day, Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
