  • . Its a little out of the way but well worth the drive. You must make reservations to go into the other building to see where the cool cars are. The music room at the top was great

  • I had never heard of it and was a little confused when we were told we weren't going with a group of friends. And I'm actually glad we did! It is one of the most interesting museums in southern California. I will be recommending this to everyone who asks what to do. Just needs good food nearby.
  • The main museum is open to the public without reservations, but there are more collections only available through reservations, so if you want to see it all, paln ahead. Wonderful showroom full of amazing cars from several decades, most from the 1920s. There is a steam locomotive on the side that has tours at 12:30 and 3:30, don't miss it. Truly a spectacular collection.
