California Automobile Museum, Sacramento

4.5
#5 of 14 in Museums in Sacramento
The California Automobile Museum offers plenty of opportunities for you to visit. Located just a stone’s throw from the famous “Old Sacramento”, and neighbors to the up 'n' coming Broadway strip, this museum is like nothing you’ve ever seen. This is a world-class display with over 150 cars under one roof. You will not find this arrangement of cars anywhere else as some of the cars are privately owned, museum owned, or hand chosen to be on display. Visit Calautomuseum.org to see exhibits coming and going throughout the year;

Classes & Group Tours: This all-ages facility offers an array of hands-on classes and stay up today on our big car themed events and trips! Although the California Automobile Museum offers free tours daily, scheduled group tours are always encouraged. If you have a group of 10 or more, schedule your date with our Education Coordinator for special needs and undivided attention. If you’re in town on 2nd Saturday, be sure to drop by around 2 pm for a special tour on the inside look of the cars and the people behind the master-work.

Vehicle Donations & Consignments: The California Automobile Museum has an excellent Vehicle Sales department that wants the sale of your car to be successful. Our Vehicle Sales Coordinator will see the entire process of your car from listing it online, to showing it on the museum floor.

Private Event Rentals: Rent out the California Automobile Museum for your next private event. Who would think that the auto museum would be the best place to host a party? We’ve seen it all; birthdays, fashion shows, brew fests, corporate holiday parties, anniversaries, and dog shows! Contact our Event Rental Coordinator for more details: events@calautomuseum.org

  • As a surprise for my wife, who is much more interested in cars than I am, I found this place almost by happenstance. The volunteers are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and my wife is now super excited by the thought of learning how to drive a Model T. Classes are available via their website. This is a fantastic snapshot of automobile history; incredibly well planned and very educational. We were especially impressed with the level of involvemenf of the local clubs as well as the availability of some beautiful classics for sale.
  • I was fortunate enough to have a work meeting at the CA Auto Museum. Meeting was in large room capable of hosting banquets or large meetings. After we were able to view the amazing selection of cars. By far the best collection of old vehicles and memorabilia for miles. Its an event the entire family will enjoy. Docents are very knowledgeable. Several really rare old cars. Like the original horseless carriage! Very worthwhile if you like car museums. Located close to old downtown so very convenient if you are down there exploring.
