Visitors will see realistic models, antique models and collectible models, as well as build and test their own models and layouts using Hot Wheels, flight simulators and wooden train track at the Museum.
Redline Derby leads donations
I was contacted by the Assistant Curator of the Longmont Museum in Colorado asking if Redline Derby would be able to help them organize a diecast donation for an upcoming exhibit in the Spring. I told him that I would most certainly help and donate cars, and would also pass the word along to the faithful Redline Derby members to rally the troops...and the Redline Derby community did not disappoint!
More than 100 cars were sent to the Longmont Museum in donation for the event and Redline Derby Racing led the way amongst sponsors. The donated cars are being used in the hands-on exhibit to educate kids about transportation, motion and wheels. There will be a lot of cars flying around their great track.
Personally, I am very proud of our membership and was honored to be part of the museum's educational efforts. I want to thank every Redline Derby member that sent in cars...know that your charity is being put to good use!
Last year they did a LEGO exhibit that looked like it was a lot of fun and was told it is quite the success with the community. I wish my local museum would do a LEGO exhibit! They're expecting a good response for this transportation exhibit as well and I'm happy and proud to have Redline Derby be a part of it.
