The Rolls-Royce Foundation Museum offers classic car aficionados a rare, close-up glimpse of vintage automotive treasures normally reserved for television dramas or the silver screen.

Run by the Rolls-Royce Foundation, an organization dedicated to the preservation and promotions of Rolls-Royces and Bentleys, the small museum houses over a dozen cars arranged by time period. Not to be missed are a Rolls-Royce once-owned by guru and cult leader Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh that features a custom, two-toned blue metallic paint job, and a vehicle nicknamed the “party car,” a 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II kitted out with a gourmet picnic basket, three liquor flasks,  a dozen glass tumblers stashed in the driver’s side door, and innumerable ashtrays.

Detailed tours of the museum are offered by the resident research librarian who maintains the site’s many technical manuals, promotional materials, and historic documents.
