Even if you don't like cars, Canepa will amaze. I guarantee It will bring a smile to your face!! If you are a car buff you will not help yourself from returning. IT'S FREE. The people are delightful. Make sure that you use the adjacent "cat walk" into the working garage area. Even for older, jaded,"seen it all", "what's the... More

If you like cars this is a must. I've been to quite a lot of car shops even Jay Lenos collection, but this place is unreal...I'll be back.

Would seem to be more at home in San Francisco or Las Vegas. Be prepared to drool. Beautiful exotic collector cars, many for sale. Wander amongst vintage Porsches and Mercedes, a Bugatti Veyron, formula race cars, and vintage Indian motorcycles. When I was there there was a Mercedes gull-wing on display. Upstairs in back you have a balcony-level view of... More

If you are a car or racing buff, you must go here. The museum is upstairs and be sure you go through the door marked Shop Viewing. You can have a Great time and it is still Free admission. Enjoy!

Our car group recently had the pleasure of touring through the operation. We were all in amazement of each area we toured. Every part of this building is absolutely spotless. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and well versed on the whole operation. Canepa are involved in all aspects of car restoration, as well as sales and the museum. For all... More

This 70,000 square foot facility belonging to racer Bruce Canepa has to be on every car lover's bucket list. Performing frame up restorations in the immaculate restoration shop with it's own body and paint facilities or the incredible cars in both the showroom and museum will leave any car aficionado with his or her jaw hanging open. We visited together... More

I have talked to Bruce on a few occasions and he is always friendly. The cars for sale and in his private collection are amazing.

What a great museum! Beautiful cars all with written history; some motorcycles; a vintage wooden boat; nifty race cars; an overview of the shop--really fun place for those of us who love cars.

Canepa Design/Museum is really four different components of the race/sports car industry: History Museum; Design; Service and Repairs; and Sales. The museum is located in small community of Scotts Valley which is very close to Santa Cruz. I was never into race or fast cars until my first visit to this museum. I really got caught up in the excitement... More
