Amazing collection of cars.

The Nethercutt Collection has the most impressive amount of cars that are not only pretty but they are all functional, all run.

Although I am not a car buff, this collection is astounding and the cars on display are more like works of art than a transportation vehicle! Beautifully restored cars will take you back to an era of beauty, elegance and opulence, and you will not be disappointed. If you register for the Collection tour (across the street) you will be...

We have actually been there three times. Each time we have seen some wonderful, wonderful old cars. The oldest one that was there this time was a 1907 Great Arrow Touring car, as well as a 1913 fire engine, and a 1936 Travelodge (quite the tag-a-long). They also have a 1912 Pullman Railcar that has been refurbished.

Beautifully exhibited antique car collection. Many cars, car parts, and memorabilia. History cards for each car give the history and reconditioning information. Interesting train car exhibit also.

The cars here are amazing. The tour is fantastic but the real stars are the cars. Give yourself time to tour the cars - if you are interested in music there are some incredible antique music machines that are fabulous in their own right. For me the purpose was the cars and I certainly was pleased. This is also fabulous... More

The new location showcases the extensive vintage car collection, and railroad car. It's a slice of time, It feels like stepping into a time machine.

This was a wonderful find, free, and surreal to see so many historical and precious automobiles. From the esoteric to the prized rare vintage autos. There are 2 showrooms, 1 is a guided tour needing reservations and the other across the street is self guided. If in LA, gotta visit this one if you enjoy beauty in cars.

They have a good history of automobiles in their library ...and to see some of these autos restored is a lesson in restoration of vehicles...great collection of classic cars.

The Nethercutt Collection is an amazing collection of mechanical musical instruments, antique furniture and cars from 1898 to 1997. There is also a 1937 Canadian Pacific Royal Hudson Locomotive and Private Car in the rear. This exhibit is also free of charge!

Most "car people" seem to know about the Peterson Museum in LA, but few seem to have ever heard of the Neterecutt Museum and the Nethercutt Collection. Mr. Nethercutt was the nephew of Merle Nethercutt Norman of Merle Norman cosmetic fame. There are actually two museums across the street from each other. Both are free. One is open on a... More
