Pate Museum of Transportation

This museum is no longer open.

It was west of Ft. Worth, an awesome place to take kids, and a fun, educational trip for the whole family.
Mr. A. M. Pate, Jr., started the musem in 1969 with a small collection.  It grew through the years and acquired treasured antique cars, airplanes, a railway palace car, Army tanks, a Navy minesweeper, to name a few.

When we went, our son really liked the periscope and enjoyed looking through it to see what was outside.¬† That was one of his and his friends’ favorite parts.

Many senior citizens could take a walk down memory lane looking at some of the vehicles. The two rarest cars were a 1917 Premier (which is probably the only model of its kind in existence with a push-button transmission), and a 1904 Schacht, which looked like a horseless carriage.

It was a fun place for the whole family, no matter what their age.
