Make sure you have a reservation, or you will not be able to see the big building across the street. The cars are fantastic, but so are the musical "boxes". Some take an entire wall. Will add to our list of places to take our visitors.

The Nethercutt Collection, including rare musical instruments, a restored train and more than 250 classic American and European cars from 1898 to 1997, has to be the best free attraction in the entire Los Angeles area. Housed in two huge buildings in Sylmar, just north of Los Angeles, the collection features some of the car world's most iconic vehicles, including... More

If you like restored cars, this is the place for you. Free admission, and a building full of shiny restored vehicles, some of which I had never heard of before. There is more to this museum somewhere (upstairs? in another building?) but we were there with kids and I do not think kids are even allowed in that other part,... More

This Museum is closed Mondays but Nethercutt/website don't take the trouble to advise tourists that their museums closes the day after public holidays - presumably some antiquated ideology that predates the car collection. Somebody needs their job role reviewed. Fellow enthusiasts with us had travelled 1,000 miles compared to our 6,000 as part of the usual travel itinerary. Disappointment ran... More

I never imagine I could have fun in a car museum. The collection is extend and magnificent, I'm not really in to cars, but it was really interesting and a great learning experience. Besides the cars the musical instruments are amazing, all of them have the characteristic to play on their own, and the show at the end I didn't... More

this place is truly a hidden gem. I am not really a "gear head" but some of those antique cars got me excited. there are some real beauties! The collection of musical things were astounding! It is a free showing of the two buildings housing Mr. Merle Norman's (yes the make-up ) collections. You have to make reservations for the... More

Amazing collection of restored cars, all types and sizes. Wonderful 2 hour tour including automated musical devices. Very impressive setting although the area is off the beaten path. Not easy to find but worth the hunt with no admission fee.

The Nethercutt Musuem is located in a average, working class part of suburban Los Angeles, but the museum itself is first class. The 100+ antique and classic cars on display are just priceless. Its a true step back into time when cars were pieces of art. The museum itself is very clean, the vehicles are in perfect or near perfect... More
