Richard Petty Museum
My family and I stopped here a few yrs ago i grew up loving the King, my son was only 12 yrs old and wasn't into it much but we plan on stopping today. After our last visit he got into Richard Petty and the history of NASCAR, which in my opinion is the best time of sport. He is 15 now and we plan on stopping today on our way back to MD from MB SC. Great place, clean and friendly staff. Last time a lady said we missed seeing the King by 5 min.
Had great time today at the Petty Museum. We even got to meet The King. He was very friendly and gracious. They have some great memorabilia of his outstanding career. I loved it, so glad we went.
Thanks Mr. Petty for allowing me to go down your memory lane enjoyed it all. Best of all the picture we took together looks too damn good. It should be put into It museum as well.
This is a must see for NASCAR fans! Richard is a living legend and a hero to many including myself. Nearly all the souvenirs are hand signed by Richard. You also get to peek in on Petty's Garage and see a display where Lee Petty started it all. The family home is right next door to the shop. There is enough to see to plan on 2 hours to enjoy it all.
We stopped on a Monday on our way to the beach. Lots of Nascar memorabilia. Bonnie in the gift shop was delightful. Mr. Petty came by and graciously took pictures with everyone!
