The reviews don't lie. This an absolutely fabulous location to see some amazing cars. This is also a great location for a special event. I helped supervise some high school senior proms here. Everyone, especially the dads, really enjoyed the location. Oh, did I mention that the people who run the place are very nice?

I have a friend who is 16 and mad about Ferraris. Took him here on a recent visit and he was in heaven. I really enjoyed it as well. The museum has many Ferraris from different time periods, which is very interesting to see how the design has changed. You can get very close to the cars, which is also... More

Amazing private collection with terrific history. Great range of sports cars and motorcycles. Tucked away in a small industrial park type area--is easy to get in and out of. Great photo opp with the car of your dreams.

I found this place on tripadvisor and it was a neat experience. The entry was a litle odd with taking a door on the left to pay (donation $5.00) and then walking out to the door across the way to enter the museum. It would have been possible for us to skip the donation process entirely. I was impressed with... More

My son and I visited the Marconi Automotive Museum during a recent trip to Southern California. It was well worth the drive to Tustin. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The cars were beautiful. And, we appreciated the charitable mission of the museum. Make time for the Marconi Museum!

Man, what great cars they have here, but my experience was an odd one. I walked in and not one person said a word to me, took any money, made eye contact, etc. It was like I was invisible. I had no idea if I was supposed to be there or not, but since I was already in, I spent... More

Dear ScottyG777, We're glad to hear you enjoyed our collection of cars! In addition to being a cool car museum, we are also a non-profit that raises money for "at-risk" charities. We have a relatively small staff and somehow missed you! Our apologies! Please try us again as we enjoy chatting with all car enthusiasts that come to see us. More

I had some time to kill, and I heard about this place. I’m not a big car enthusiast, but I can appreciate an unusual or amazing car when I see it. This museum had quite a few unusual and amazing cars, and I was very entertained! It’s definitely worth a visit. Keep in mind that the place is pretty small,... More

Lots of Ferrari's and other foreign sports and racing cars as well as a cross section of famous America racing cars! Worth visiting! Children under 12 are free. Suggested donation for adults is $5.00 and well worth it.

The only place whre I have seen more Ferraris than here is the Ferrari Museum in Maranello. Not even there you can find gems like the two Ferraris ordered by the Sultan of Brunei. They have 2 out of the 349 F50s ever built !! It is a quiet place, good parking, the entrance fee goes to charity, everything OK.... More

Being a Bentley person, I was pleased to see that they had an 02 Azure and 94 Turbo RL. They also have an older Rolls-Royce.
