“Most amazing cars you will ever see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Probably 150 of the nicest cars you will ever see. Most were the top of the line from their era . And the museum is free.

“Hidden Gem of a FABULOUS Los Angeles museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I am a long time resident of Los Angeles and was ever so surprised and enchanted by the breath-taking automotive museum the Nethercutt family has left in trust for the public to enjoy for FREE! I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in American ingenuity and tenacity - the collection had humble beginnings with an aunt who made cosmetics in her kitchen and a nephew who studied at Cal Tech that resulted in Merle Norman cosmetics. Nephew restores a car, earns an award and the rest is history. The Nethercutts are still winning prestigious awards for their meticulous restoration of automobiles. Across the street is the Nethercutt "collection" with more breathtaking cars, musical instruments and other collectables (to view these a reservation is required.) No children under 10 (too many tempting things for the young and impulsive to touch.) The staff are true professionals and provide lively interpretation. Planning is well worth your time to be inspired.

“Route 66 trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

At the end of 3 weeks on the road traveling Route 66, our group decided to visit some of the auto museums in the LA area. The Nethercutt is by far one of the most exquisite automotive museums I have ever seen. The quality of the cars in addition to the facilitiy is really first class. All the cars on display are housed in 2 buildings. One building is self guided and the other has a guide who helps explain the Nethercutt philosophy about the museum. All of this is FREE!

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We were only in LA for a few days and were disappointed that the museum was closed for a long labor day weekend! One would think this was a good holiday to be open!
