From the moment you assemble for the "reservations only" tour of the main building you feel like this will be special. It is. The boxy plain building does not prepare you for what is inside. The interior is a grand salon of marble, sparkling chandeliers, columns and a sweeping staircase to the second floor. The main floor houses an amazing collection of antique automobiles all in pristine condition. Most are so enormous compared to today's cars that you wonder how anyone could have driven them on the road. The upper floors have hood ornaments, furniture, pipe organ, and a full wall mechanical band. This is an incredible museum that women who appreciate fine things, will enjoy. It's not just for car guys.

First of all none of our friends who are Angelino natives had ever heard of this place. It's a great hidden gem. It's definitely out of the way (in what I think is the north Valley in LA) but it's free! And it is a really cool, really large collection of amazing old cars. We only did the museum with the cars & did not take the guided tour, but if you like cars & have time for the drive over, it's totally worth it (we were literally the only people there).

First this museum is actually two museums. The first is free and open to anyone who walks in. It is a great collection of antique cars ,with a few classic, but not antique vehicles. The is also a locomotive and a classic private railcar to tour at select times (also free). The second museum is across the street (check out the massive bronze entry doors), and can only be visited with a pre-arranged appointment. Go to their web site to arrange an appointment. Do this at least 2-3 weeks before you plan to visit. This museum is known as the COLLECTION. Here you will find some of the finest and choice automobiles in the Nethercutt collection. You will also be entertained by a fine collection of mechanical musical instruments/bandboxes. You will also have a short concert presented on their massive recording pipe organ. A visit to the Nethercutt is well worth a visit. Do expect to walk a lot and be on your feet for a long time. I've been twice and spent at least 4 hours each time. Many people will get "car'ed out" as there are so many of them. If you can only spent less than two hours the make reservations for the COLLECTION and see the other part of the museum another time. This facility is wheelchair accessable. Small children are not allowed in the collection.

This museum is really worth visiting. It is an easy day trip but do make the reservations ahead of time to take the 2 hour guided tour. Then go across the street for a self guided tour of additional cars as well as the train tour. And it's all free. Easy to find off the freeway and lots of free parking. Plan to take at least 3-4 hours walking around to read about all the cars. There are restroom facilities in both locations as well as elevators for those that need it.
