“My goal for the museum moving forward is to utilize the incredible collection of Land Cruisers to inspire adventure and wonder for all museum visitors”, David says. "We also have a great opportunity to educate visitors on the deep history of the Land Cruiser as well as the people and cultures that relied on them.” David also hopes the museum will increasingly serve the surrounding community and welcome local visitors as well as travelers from all over the world.
