The museum is free. The car collection is extensive and varied with wonderful labeling. I had never heard of many of the old makes and models. We enjoyed the collection of old hood ornaments. They have a restored steam engine outback with a luxury Pullman car attached. It was fun to see how traveling by rail compared to the Titantic. The "Collection" (also free) is across the street from the museum and is full of more cars, and antique musical instruments. This is open to see by appointment only and we did not reserve in time for the twice a day tour. So we will definitely be back when we visit our friend in California

This is one of the best bargain attractions in L.A, Visit anytime Tues thru Sat. Tours avail. Thurs - Sat. The tours are a real treat. We have been taking visitors here for years and none have been dissapointed. There is just so much to see. A world class collection of old cars, automated musical instruments including a Mighty Wurletzer that is awesome to hear, and a 1937 locomotave and 1912 pullman car. All lovingly and perfectly restored. Check the website http://www.nethercuttcollection.org/Visitor.aspx for more info. They occasionaly have special events. They are all free but difficult to get tickets for. This is all thanks to The Nethersutt's and Merle Norman cosmetics. A real gift to our city. Don't miss it !!

IT’S FREE week days are best no crowds you have the place to yourself - Nethercut museum has the largest collection of antique cars I have ever seen along with the other items it’s amazing to see we were there about three hours just in the one building alone the other building across the street is by guided tour only on Thursday, Friday & Saturday

A wonderful display of beautiful cars, Regina music machines, an old travel trailer and a locomotive and pullman car. Did I mention that it is FREE?! We have visited a lot of automotive museums and this one is just as good as some that we have paid plenty to get into- if you are a car enthusiast or just want to spend a nice couple of hours enjoying some beautifully restored (and a couple that aren't) old cars- I highly recommend the Nethercutt. And did I mention that it is FREE?!
