What an amazing collection of cars. From the outside it is very plain and after entering it feels totally overwhelming. Beautiful cars from all eras, firetrucks in a really beautiful setting.

What an interesting place and it's free! Beautiful vintage cars in mint condition. The museum is actually two buildings, across the street from each other. One of the museums holds cars and all kind of collections (rare dolls, expensive porcelain, player pianos, etc.) collected over the years by the Nethercutt Family. The other building houses cars only. You'll see the workers in their dusters cleaning and polishing each and every part of the car. The cars are stunning with their original colors. I'm not really a car buff, but for those who are into vintage cars, this is the place to go.

Here you will see the most amazing vintage and exotic car collection in a very opulent setting. Also- there is an impressive antique pipe organ collection on the second floor. If you remember the song, "Stairway to the Stars", you'll love the second floor.

If you love antique cars (as I do), plan a trip here soon. The cars are restored perfectly. It's great fun to visit.

We visited this museum on a rainy day in La, were looking for something to do indoors on a weekend trip here from the East Coast. This is a must-visit museum for anyone, and amazingly enough it is free (even parking). Collection of magnificently restored cars cannot be described - they must be seen in person to understand.The staff was super friendly and allowed us to join the tour of three story museum addition across the street (we did not even know about this tour beforehand - it was amazing). The building is beautifully decorated and no expense was spared in restoring 100's of cars, musical player pianos, large ORCHESTRIANS and assorted pipe organs. Kyle (the curator was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable, he loves what he does and has been working there 47 years ). The third floor 2 million dollar computerized player piano and Wurlitzer one of a kind organ that you get to hear playing is a once in a lifetime experience. Tours are given Thursday, Friday and Saturday - and should not be missed!!! This museum is a hidden gem, we could not have guessed how much we would have enjoyed it. Recommend it to anyone.
