Antique & Classic Power Museum

Keeping History Alive

Showcasing America’s Heritage and Ingenuity

The Richard W. Erickson Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which was established in 1999 with a vision to preserve early American history in a way that would provide an educational and recreational experience for the community. Our Antique & Classic Power Museum houses one of the largest and most unique collections of antique and classic automobiles, motorcycles, farm implements, steam and gas tractors as well as Americana memorabilia.  Our pioneer village includes an array of old buildings; a shoe shop, print shop, church and Wallsburg’s first mercantile established in 1890.

Plan your visit during our annual Antique Power Show the weekend after Father’s Day each year or during one of our crowd-pleasing music festivals.  We do private tours by appointment, please visit our Visitor Info for more details. This museum is a hidden gem and earns five stars as a premier Utah family activity.

Located at 50 Starks Lane Wallsburg, Utah. Wallsburg is 30 minutes between Orem and Heber.
