The Kemp Auto Museum closed on June 7, 2015, after ten years of business. (I visited the museum two days before it shut its doors. It was my only time.)
The place’s Facebook page posted on April 29:
“On April 5, 2005, The Kemp Auto Museum opened with a mission to preserve, maintain, display and expand a collection of vintage antique, classic and contemporary European automobiles previously owned by Mr. Kemp.
After ten wonderful years of sharing the finest examples of European engineering with the Greater Saint Louis area, the Kemp Auto Museum will be closing its doors for the final time. We have been blessed to uphold Mr. Kemp’s dream, and have reveled in showcasing his collection throughout our tenure.”
I asked one of the workers what would happen to the collection, as well as the cake. Sadly, some of the cars will probably be sold to different places. The cake, on the other hand, will be kept by the organization.
