PERMANENT EXHIBIT

Visitors will learn how development of commercial and personal transportation had an impact on people’s lives and America’s culture in a dramatic fashion. These are “everyman” vehicles, once owned and cherished by small business owners and municipalities as they looked to create a more professional presence for themselves and expand their own reach. Our three-level car racking system holds over fifty vehicles, and is the only one of its kind in an American museum. Visitors watch as vehicles come down on a robotic tray and rotate on a turntable.

IT’S OUR GAME: BASEBALL ‘A Huge vault of American culture’ in Elliott Museum’s baseball collection
Everyone has a baseball story. “Sometimes sharing their stories have brought tears to their eyes,” says Frank Spera of his experiences in the Museum’s Baseball Gallery exhibit titled It’s Our Game. The gallery includes signed baseball cards, baseballs, bats, and other memorabilia. But it comes alive when the Museum’s docents are there to share stories with visitors. Frank Spera is now available to present stories that are in his book “cardboard time capsules” (available in the Elliott Museum Store) gleaned from his research and experiences while serving as a volunteer docent at the Elliott Museum.

The Elliott Museum has a comprehensive signed collection of baseball-related items including autographed baseball cards, baseballs, bats, and other artifacts. The collection of autographed baseballs now numbers more than 250. The collection sports signatures by players from the Major Leagues, the Negro Leagues, and the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). Among the most famous players represented are: Ray Dandridge, the Negro League; Hank Aaron, the Negro and Major Leagues; June Peppas (AAGPBL); and Jackie Robinson, Nolan Ryan, Ted Williams, Derek Jeter, Bob Feller, Ralph Kiner, and Babe Ruth of the Major Leagues.

Immersing Visitors Into Historic Stuart
The Stuart Main Street gallery immerses visitors in historic Stuart and the vehicles that were then part of people’s lives, here and across the nation. Recreated facades of the historic Citizens Bank, the Walter Kitching Store, and Krueger buildings harken back to a time when Stuart was emerging as the thriving community it is today. Visitors will see not only the earliest pioneer motor vehicles that changed Martin County’s and the nation’s dependence upon the horse, but also will learn how Model T Fords eventually brought rural dwellers into town and how trucks changed domestic life by delivering goods and services to homes.

The Elliott Museum has installed a very cool exhibit that will allow you to explore your creative side! The exhibit features a Makerspace Lab with eight computer stations, four 3-D printers and two die-cut machines. You can create your own animated movies and paper engineering projects, and make designs that can be sent to our in-house 3-D printers and laser cutters. Helpful docents will be on hand to introduce you to our easy-to-use technology! All of this is included with the price of museum admission.

Additionally, we welcome you to the world of animation! It’s a world that’s larger-than-life, where a picture has the power to convey a thousand words, ignite an infinite realm of imagination, and create a limitless source of smiles.

On loan from the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta, this captivating exhibit is a whimsical gallery of madcap characters from six of the world’s leading animation artists.

The exhibit showcases the art of six very popular animation artists, including Carter Goodrich, character designer for Despicable Me, Ratatouille, Finding Nemo, Shrek, Hotel Transylvania, Brave, Open Season, Coco, as well as 17 New Yorker magazine covers (and counting).

We are offering a million heartfelt thanks to Janeen Mason, curator of the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, Florida, for creating this magnificent exhibit, and sharing it with Martin County families. Janeen is one of the absolute shining stars of the art scene in Florida, and we are thrilled to be enjoying her talents and her beautiful heart!
