Visiting the Steele Wheels Motor Museum

Parker Lytle | August 2023

Welcome back to another edition of Parker’s Perspective! This time we will be exploring one of the coolest places I’ve been to here in Halifax. If you love cars, you don’t want to miss checking out the Steele Wheels Motor Museum! 

Steele Wheels Motor Museum Entrance

 When you first walk in, you are greeted by a friendly employee. Here you pay for your ticket, (adults 12$ - children 12 and under free!) and then you are free to roam around the museum for as long as you’d like. The space is wide open, there are lots of lights including a big chandelier, and a huge stage with a jumbo screen projecting promotional images.

There were tons of shiny cars. The first vehicle you see is a Pink Convertible Desoto. This one was mounted on its own revolving platform. It was such an unexpected fun surprise! A bit further down was a Black Porsche 911 Carrera G series, That one looked like it was smiling at me.

There were many types of vehicles, older more historical types mixed with modern sport cars. There was also an exhibit that featured famous cars from Hollywood. One of these vehicles was the orange 1969 Dodge Charger from the TV show Dukes of Hazzard. Fun Fact! Some people say that over 300 of these cars were destroyed while filming the TV series. 

I got up close to the Delorean from Back to the Future. An interesting fact about this car is that it only ever came in silver, because that was the natural colour of the material used to construct the body. This material was not meant to be painted over.

I got to sit in the mystery machine from the movie Scooby Doo, that was a pretty cool experience!


I even got to see the Ferrari Justin Beiber customized in what was classified by the company as “unprofessional” as a result, Beiber is banned from ever owning another Ferrari.

I ended our visit by going to the canteen… so neat! It was actually an old retrofitted camper. I ordered a spicy chicken wrap, and an ice cream sandwich, and called it a day!


Thanks for taking the time to read this edition of Parker’s Perspective! Now everyone, start your engines and cruise on down to the Steele Wheels Motor Museum, you’ll be happy you did!
