MiM Auctions, Astronauts, Alligators Tour
April 8 – 13, 2014


The NCM’s Museum in Motion program kicks off the 2014 season with a tour to Florida.
What better way spring into spring by visiting this beautiful state? This is your chance for a 5 night stay at the exclusive PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Garden, FL.  Take side trips to an Alligator Farm – take an airboat ride – tour a lighthouse, and get a special tour and lunch with an astronaut at Kennedy Space Center. Now, if that wasn’t enough, how about winding up at the Barrett Jackson Auction on Saturday with optional golf on Sunday! Can’t get much better than this!!
