I have been visiting this collection since the 1970's. I love to see all the old cars. They are meticulously cared for. There are many other things to see here also, such as... read more

I went to this museum with my husband as he loves old cars and can talk about them all day. I enjoyed learning about the background of the cars. I'm not a car person but I enjoyed myself.

It is difficult for me to properly review the Nethercutt Collection because I am conflicted about the experience. On the one hand, the collection of automobiles and especially the musical instruments is superb. We were able to get close enough to some of the most beautiful cars in order to see inside them, and the curators opened the doors and... More

You will NOT be disappointed. Originally, we wanted to go to Petersen Museum, but they were closed for renovation. After researching options, we decided on Nethercutt AND the private tour (you need to call ahead!!!!). I was "in awe" the entire tour. We could have spent 4 hours easily (the private tour is about 2 hours). This museum gives you... More

Firstly, this is a great collection of cars - seriously special cars mostly from the 30s to 50s. Surprisingly, there is a huge collection of self playing musical instruments - some are massive and would have been found in theaters, some are small.

Lots of nostalgic information from by-gone era. Wonderful collection of cars (at both the Nethercutt Collection across from the Museum, and at the Museum itself), along with interesting and beautiful musical instruments, and collections of crystal, china, various porcelain and other bric-a-brac. Make a reservation for their holiday concerts for a real treat listening to one-of-a-kind instruments.

My daughter's gifted me with this experience on a birthday. In addition to the stunning collection of cars, there is a unique collection of antique automated musical instruments plus one of the largest, coolest theatre organs in captivity. You get to spread out on the floor, the couch, a chair, what have you and hear a brief concert with some... More

From Antiques to DeLorean, all makes and types to look at admire. This is a car enthusiast paradise. The guided tours, when available, are marvelous, especially if it includes an organ concert. There are other odds and ends, including railroad cars and medical instruments.

This is an unbelievable collection of pristine condition cars. i've not seen it's equal, and I'm not even a car person. If you ARE a car person, especially the beginning of the car years, this should not be missed. Well laid out, comfortable, all indoors, inexpensive. For the enthusiast, this is a must.
