As the city of Tucson grew it often took over large areas of the desert that were ranch lands. Today some of ranches still exist, often being surrounded by suburbia. The Franklin Auto Museum is in one of those areas.
Thomas Hubbard became a collector of Franklin Automobiles in 1950, and brought them home to his ranch in Tucson. The ranch consists of an adobe home, along with numerous out buildings.
One great feature of this museum is being able to tour the home.
The collection of automobiles are housed in 4 different buildings.
The Franklin Auto Museum is a hidden gem of Tucson.
