It’s Friday, February 10, 2017, and time for a Virtual Field Trip
Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)
Take a fun virtual tour of a microcar museum. This archived website of the now closed Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum in Madison, Georgia, showcases the cars once in their collection.
One might ask, what exactly is a microcar? A microcar, otherwise known as a “bubble car”, is an economy vehicle with an engine size less than 700cc or battery powered, with 2 doors or less, can have 3 or 4 wheels, and was manufactured after 1945. Microcars played an important role in Europe after World War II as they worked to deal with shortages of food and gas.
After arriving at today’s site, you can begin browsing through the over 200 cars by selecting either the “START TOUR” or “TOUR INDEX” links under the showroom image. Each car provides:
- Multiple image of the car
- Informative text about the car
- Specs related to the car
This is an interesting tour and sure to be interesting for the car enthusiast in any family.
