The collection is best for car enthusiast. It's best for older children who are into classic cars. It's a free admission, but there are rules. No backpacks or selfie sticks. No food or drink. All very reasonable rules. I recommend going to their website and...More

The Nethercutt Collection has vintage cars that are magnificently restored and oldtime musical instruments that literally create their own concert. Plan on spending at least 2 hours here and ask to go on their special tour.

MJC-DW is correct. They are experiencing website problems but that won't affect your visit. Give them a call, make your reservation, and experience this amazing place!

Itinerary help and driving times from Anaheim to LA? (5 Replies)
We are staying in Anaheim middle of June and would like to take a day trip to LA. We are a family of 4 (boys ages 14 & 12) and will be renting a car for the day. Need a little help with best routes to take and roughly how long with traffic for driving time and the best times to leave. We would be doing this on a Thursday. All my boys are car buffs so I thought we could start at the Nethercutt Collection then go and see the space shuttle exhibit at the Science Center, then walk...More

The Space Shuttle Exhibit is really worth the visit just for that. Its quite an amazing experience Imo. While the actual Science Center is free, they do charge for parking, $10 and you need to have cash only. They have lots of fast food places to eat right inside the Center as well. Expect about a 1 hour drive from Anaheim to LA. And during weekday, you really need to be watchful of those rush hour traffic times. I would suggest leaving Anaheim either around 6am or not till after 9am. And...More

Yes, the traffic from Santa Monica to Hollywood will be bad until 7PM or so. Have dinner in Santa Monica, or else you have to head to Hollywood by 3ish.

That's a lot of things you want to do and places you want to visit packed into 4 days. Cal State LA offers a fashion design degree. There may be other Cal State Universities that offer such a degree. You'll probably need to drive instead of taking public transportation.
