Take your time. This is one of the finest collections of vintage automobiles in the country. You'll see cars from movies and just a ton of vintage Rolls. The train out back is well worth the visit. If you have any old time train buffs this is a must.The guides were extremely knowledgeable.

If you like old cars, in prime condition, then you need to visit the Nethercutt Collection museum. From Rolls Royce cars to Pierce Arrows to cars you probably have never heard of such as the Diana and Moon Motors, you'll find them here. There are about 130 cars on display, and they're all in prime condition. The amount of labor,... More

This collection is amazing! Historic cars (all running), antique french furniture that belonged to Marie Antoinette, reproducing pianos and much much more!!!!! Call ahead and make a reservation so you can tour both buildings; it's so worth it! If you don't you might only be able to see the car collection which is still magnificent. The train alone is well... More

We have been several times now and every one is better than the last. Definitely get reservations for the tour, there is so much more than cars and the musical instruments upstairs are unbelievable. The employees doing the tours are super informed and friendly. Everyone from out of town we have taken has been impressed.

My wife and I visited about eight months earlier but couldn't stay for the train which has limited viewing times. I returned alone to see the train. While there are many cars, mechanical musical instruments, some furniture, and many other collectables, there is one locomotive and one car. The locomotive is a 1937 Canadian-Pacific Royal Hudson locomotive #2839. It ran... More

Quietly tucked away in the North Valley, a collection built by a private collector is a dazzling sight. It is not modern and new like the Petersen, but is large enough to have you agog, diverse to keep your attention and definitely a place to take your kids for a half day education on what helps us move !

If you love classic cars, this is the place to visit. You will be awed by the dazzling collection of perfectly preserved vehicles including some of the best ever created. While the Peterson Museum caters for tourists, the Nethercutt Collection is for the serious automobile enthusiast. If you have time, book ahead for the guided tour which takes you through... More

The Collection is actually two buildings located in the warehouse district of Sylmar (northern Los Angeles area). The first building is the Collection's Museum, which is open for self-guided tours from Tuesday thru Saturday, and... More

Make sure you take a trip here to see their collection of both cars and music instruments playing by themselves. To see everything you have to sign up for a guided tour of about two hours. Both me and my wife enjoyed ourselves even though she couldn't care less about cars.
