Hollywood Star Cars

Image for Thing To Do Detail

Get up close to TV and movie cars spanning 50 years of favorites, from Batman, Bond, and “Bumblebee” to the whole “Fast and Furious” franchise, at the Hollywood Star Cars Museum in Gatlinburg.

This pop culture showcase features more than 40 rare vehicles. See cars and motorcycles from shows and films including:

  • Batman. Compare Batmobiles across the decades–the museum has both the 1966 TV Batmobile and a Batmobile from the 1992 movie “Batman Returns.”
  • James Bond. Imagine living James Bond’s glamorous life and driving the BMW from 1995’s “Goldeneye,” with machine guns and Stinger missiles on board. Don’t miss other Bond movie memorabilia on display, too.
  • Disney. Fans will want to snap a selfie with the 1967 Volkswagen Beetle known as Herbie, The Love Bug, in five films.
  • “Back to the Future.” See the 1981 DeLorean car that carried Marty McFly back in time.
  • Classic TV. Get nostalgic with the “Beverly Hillbillies'” jalopy and “The Munsters’” coffin-shaped drag racer.
  • “Ghostbusters.” The movie’s ghost-hunting heroes zipped around in a converted ambulance now on display.
“Fast and Furious” Collection

For fans of “The Fast and the Furious,” this museum is an absolute must. The collection boasts a whopping 11 cars from these high-octane action films!

The “Fast” collection covers more than 20 years of movies, from the neon green Mitsubishi Eclipse from the franchise’s 2001 debut to the 1972 Chevy Nova from the 2021 installment. Even the Ice Charger is here, the car that raced across a frozen fjord on spiked wheels! About 50 percent of vehicles used in these hit films ended up destroyed during filming, so seeing this many “Fast” cars in one place is a treat for any true gearhead.

Stars’ Personal Rides

Some of the splendid cars here haven’t appeared on screen. These are personal cars once belonging to superstars, including legendary musicians Elvis Presley and Paul McCartney, boxer Mike Tyson, and action star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
