This specialty museum is located on an industrial street outside Oxnard. It is open to the public 2 Saturdays per month. Private and semi-private tours can be arranged through the web site. NO HANDBAGS of any kind are permitted in the museum. Be sure to review their rules! We purchased our tickets in advance (recommended) and got to the museum... More

Mr. Mullin is to be thanked for collecting such an outstanding selection of French art deco period automobiles , art and furniture and for sharing them with the public. I have visited the museum four times and on each occasion I came away impressed by the displays and the appealing manner in which they are presented. The art deco theme... More

If I was to give a rating it would be a 5/5 for the cars. The Bugatti exhibition is very cool and so worth the history lesson. The price was great at $15.00 a ticket. Also, the gallery is only open on select dates of the month. Be sure to check so you know and can plan accordingly. There a... More

This to me is an art deco gallery. I love art deco by the way. These are the same cars I see at the Pebble Beach show but for a lot less than a $200 ticket. Also, It is so close and not at all crowded. I tell everyone I know how cool it is and it is a hidden... More

The cars are in good shape, especially for how old they are. The volunteers were knowledgeable and friendly. The trains were cool too. I didn't expect that in an auto museum.

We were invited to the Art of Bugatti exhibition. My husband John Lawson has been actively helping to build the Bugatti100p reproduction aeroplane, which is part of the exhibition there this summer 2014. After 4 years of very hard work, I am so proud to see his achievement displayed in perhaps the best museum ever! The collection of cars is... More

As part of our international museum conference, we got a chance to visit the Mullin Museum in Oxnard today. We were greeted by the most obnoxious woman ever that set the tone for a bad experience. She barked at us like we were school kids who had no idea how to act in a transportation museum. It was quite offensive... More

This is a definite must see when in Oxnard. You will need to make your reservation in advance. We went on a Saturday and arrived shortly after they opened. Plenty of free parking and easy to find. I recommend you watch the video first to get the background then take a tour conducted by one of the docents. We had... More

Terrific small museum but very interesting even to those not into cars. Worth the time to go out of your way to see.
