This is a little known, must see. Antique cars, completely restored to showroom quality, organs of all sizes and old railroad cars. A little out of the way but worth the drive and time.

A fabulous collection of vintage cars from 1910s to 1930s. This is not just about cars, this museum has also the finest collection of mechanical musical instrument which is one of the best in the world. And the best thing about visiting this place is that it’s FREE!

This is a small museum but they have lots of classic cars. Also, I was amazed that they actually have the car from "The Great Gatsby" movie in this museum. I believe they have more to show if you take the guided tour. It's actually free admission. I enjoyed it especially my husband.

I thought my father might enjoy the museum and he did, but I enjoyed it as much or more. It is an amazing collection and would love to share the experience with any of my friends.

This is a real find in the north valley. A fabulous collection of classic cars, some displayed in a setting meant to resemble a car dealership from the 20s or 30s. There's also an old railroad car beautifully adorned and fit for a robber baron before TR started busting up the trusts. Definitely worth a visit.

All of the cars are in prestine condition, and I loved that they tell you who the owners have been (that is the most fascinating part). I went to do some research for a book, and needed to see some of the cars I would be writing about up close. I was so grateful that this was only a 15... More

The car collection was fun and wonderful specimens. I found the staff kurt and unfriendly, unlike the very attentive and friendly staff at our visit to Getty Villa the day before.

OK, I'm a car nut, but even so... This place has a truly first class collection, heavily weighted toward Full Classics (you won't see Tri-Five Chevys here!), impeccably restored (Pebble Beach quality). Displayed in the music hall portion of museum such that you can get up close and personal, they open up a couple of the cars for interior examination,... More

I have seen many car museums, but this is one of the best. Not only cars but much more. J.B. Nethercutt, founder of Merrell Norman Cosmetics loved "Functional Art". He considered cars, musical watches, Player Instruments, Hood Ornaments and other items as works of art with a function to them. He has some historic vehicles like cars that belonged to... More

We went on the free tour given by the staff and it was wonderful. Two and half hours and then we toured the rest of the collection. It was fantastic!! This is a must for anyone, even those who aren't into cars. The musical collection was fascinating as well. I can't believe the whole thing is free
