First of Its Kind Automotive Teaching Museum to Provide Education, Craftsmanship

Mineola, NY -- Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano will be joined by Autoseum President/Director Mike Manning and Vice President/Director Andy Perillo at the grand opening of the County's new Automotive Teaching Museum, a unique educational teaching facility, that will develop the cars of tomorrow while serving as an institution of learning and craftsmanship. The Autoseum is partnering with BOCES for this educational program.

The Autoseum, which is located at 100 County Seat Drive in Mineola, will offer instruction in the field of automotive design. It will feature a fully functional auto body shop, along with regular classes and workshops demonstrating highly specialized equipment and techniques to students. In addition, the garage will provide hands-on experience by employing a rotating staff of interns and apprentices from schools and colleges across Long Island. A permanent display of the famous automobiles, designed by George Barris, the "King of Kustomizers" and automaker to the stars, will include one of the original Batmobiles, the Aston Martin DB5 made famous in the James Bond movies and the Drag-U-La from TV's Munsters. Revolving exhibit spaces will also showcase the work of other designers from across Long Island and the United States.
