The tour of the music boxes is excellent. If you are into old cars, they sure have then as well. They also collected dolls, ceramics, coins, and more. Take the guided tour to hear the music boxes played. "Boxes" does not describe the extent. The collection includes a player piano and full sized organ.

Great place for photographers. Cars restored to their shiny showroom conditions from eras long gone. You can take the tour and have a snack in a couple hours. Good break for long car trips

I have lived in LA for 45 years and had no idea this was 20 minutes from my home. What a great collection! These cars are great. A must see exhibit. Don't miss the Pullman car. Wow! Would be fun to travel in that. My children loved it too, and it was free. We are looking forward to returning.

From the turn of the century to the early 60's. In immaculate condition, some restored some original, great stories and information plaques for each vehicle. FREE! We only visited the main floor. Looking forward to returning with reservations to see the upper floors holding collections of furniture, musical instruments, the pipe organ. They even hold concerts a few times a... More

The collection, setting, and presentation are more than interesting. Try to make reservations (thursday through saturday) so you can take the guided tour through the separate collection housed in the grand salon. The grand salon includes musical instruments, clocks, watches, furniture, and auto accessories as well as the special auto collection. Fantastic.

The main museum is well worth the drive out of LA, but the second museum accessible only by guided tour (register on-line, only Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays) is the real treasure house. My spouse is indifferent to vehicles, but the main museum caught her attention because of the amazing craftsmanship that was lavished on the old cars, first when they... More

I have been to this car museum 2 times and will go again and again. The tours are free and all you must do is make a reservation. There are 2 tour times available in the morning. The museum tour guide was very knowledgeable and well dressed. There is so much to see and learn about so a person should... More

The layout, the tour guide, the items on display, the entire package! A must for car enthusiasts. The player piano which has the original of Rhapsody in Blue being played by George Gershwin is worth the visit, all by itself. The music box collection. Can't say enough about this venue.

What an amazing collection of cars. From the outside it is very plain and after entering it feels totally overwhelming. Beautiful cars from all eras, firetrucks in a really beautiful setting.
