I'm posting this because there may be a few people here who might want to know that the Ford Discovery Centre Museum in Geelong is closing its doors on Sunday 29 July 2012.

For anyone who likes cars and has always intended to go there and have a look at these heritage cars, now is the time to do so.

Sorry to hear that. Was a good attraction in Geelong.

That's a real shame.

What will happen to the Ford-owned cars and prototypes?
Sorry, I haven't heard. I'm planning on going there during this week; if I find out anything interesting I'll post here or at Walking Melbourne.

In my opinion such a museum would be better located in a warehouse somewhere central-ish in Melbourne, such as Port Melbourne/Docklands/South Melbourne; that is, I imagine it would generate more visits (not that I know that visitor numbers have anything to do with its impending closure).

Geebong is a dump, no wonder it failed.

I think it has more to do with the suituation that Ford Australia is in at the moment rather than anything to do with Geelong.

Not actually a huge fan of ford but being a heritage car afficionado would be planning to visit the place. My dad has an old discovery but because of some reasons he used to got it sold to his couz. Ford has been in business for years and i believe they could survive the battle against others.

Ford as a company is in no danger of going under. Ford as an Australian manufacturer is, and fight as they may their time is almost up. The Falcon has lost the plot and will be gone, so that leaves the Territory which could be built elsewhere, maybe in Thailand alongside the Focus.
