World Of Speed Honors The Past, Looks To Future

The World of Speed museum in Wilsonville is an homage to all things fast. 

Opened in 2015, the World of Speed has quickly become a popular stop for old gear heads, racing enthusiasts and kids alike. Epic permanent exhibits paired with innovative rotating ones keep things changing so that every time you visit, there's plenty of new things to see.

Their next rotating exhibit will feature vehicles telling the fascinating, and fast, story of one of the world's most coveted automotive brands: Ferrari. The whole history of this legendary manufacturer will be represented, from the earliest models to some of the newest super cars they've put out. 

One of the coolest features of the museum is not just their interactive exhibits, but they have a truly innovative vocational education program that trains kids from several area high schools in mechanical skills. Students who go through the program come away with the skills they need to be competitive in the job market. Younger kids aren't left out either, as summer camps and winter break camps keep them entertained and educated during their off months. 

The museum really does capture your attention at every point. From the sculpture welcoming you outside the front entrance, to the lobby filled with great merchandise on into the vast gallery filled with all sorts of vehicles that go fast, the World of Speed is a perfect way to spend a day.
