Who would have thought! An amazing car museum and music box collection in an unlikely place. Most families would have built their weekend retreat in a scenic location. But, not the Nethercutt's. They call it San Sylmar, a great comparison to Hearst Castle in San Simeon on the Big Sur coast. Once you are guided into the museum, think Willy... More

This is basically a museum showcasing vintage cars by the Nethercutt family ! The collection is vast and I learned a thing or two which car brands were already exiting back in the day. We went to the one open to the public everyday but if you wanted to get into the major museum you need to reserve as they... More

Went here with my nephew (27 yrs old) who loves cars. This was an unexpected jewel! The main car museum has an extensive collection of antique cars; trucks and even a railroad car. This part of the museum you do not need reservations for but you have to make reservations for the other museum across the street which is a... More

If you love cars, you will be blown away. I have been to many auto museums and nothing comes close to this one. We didn't even go to the second museum across the street, or see the train car out back. This will exceed your expectations!

If your car not, then this is a great visit. They have a lot more cars then the Peterson, but the displays are not nearly as interesting.

If vintage cars are your thing (and railroad cars included), then this is your stop. Hundreds of perfectly preserved and showcased automotive works of art. Restored and displayed by the family that made its money in Merle Norman Cosmetics.

The cars here look like showroom new; but, they are all drivers and are taken out for many events. But wait until you see and hear the pipe organ! Usually one of the curators will go to the keyboard and give a mini-concert.

The last change of summer I can take my son go out with me, I chose Nethercutt Museum. Once I stepped inside, I knew I found the treasure island. After 5 years car sales experience, I knew so little about car after today. What a glory history in the past about cars, I only regret that I came this late.... More
