The Cadillac LaSalle Club Museum & Research Center (CLCMRC) was created in 1995 to celebrate, preserve and showcase the rich heritage of Cadillac. Since then, thousands of people who share the CLCMRC’s vision to present to the public the pre-eminent collection of Cadillac vehicles, memorabilia and technical & historical information have contributed millions.
Donations are the CLCMRC’s lifeblood. They have enabled building and operating the Cadillac & LaSalle Museum and sustaining the operation of the CLCMRC Research Center.

Cadillac has set the standard for automotive excellence and innovation since 1902 when the owners of a failing Detroit car company persuaded Henry Leland to reorganize the company and use his precision-designed and manufactured engine. From the revolutionary self-starter, the first high-volume V-8 engine, Synchro-Mesh transmission and V-16 to the Sixty Special, the Eldorado, the Escalade, and Lyriq, Cadillac carries on the tradition of innovation and quality established by Henry Leland.
The vision of the Cadillac LaSalle Club Museum & Research Center (CLCMRC) is to present to the public the pre-eminent collection of Cadillac vehicles, memorabilia and technical & historical information. This collection demonstrates the impact these premier automobiles have had for more than a century. It provides an invaluable resource to researchers, historians, car enthusiasts and the public.
In the long term, the Museum building will be expanded from its current 10,000 square feet to 24,000 square feet. However, in the near term the CLCMRC will focus on four priorities.
Increase the accessibility of collection (museum & literature)
Integrate electronic technology to make its collection accessible throughout the world without the need to visit its facilities.
Increase educational content of museum displays
Incorporate its cars and artifacts into meaningful displays that provide context and historical significance of each to tell the Cadillac story.
Adopt practices to make its collection and resources known to the community beyond the Cadillac & LaSalle Club.
Include contemporary focus
Help Cadillac acquaint new owners and others interested in its products with the brand’s rich heritage.
