“Sad museum and way overpriced”
Reviewed April 5, 2011

I would highly recommend NOT going to this museum. If you are a car person, this isn't a good representation at all. It was quite a bit of money for 1 room and took about 10 minutes to browse through. My husband is a huge car buff and just laughed. It could have been so good, but you are better off going to a local car show or Good Guys car show!

We thought it was a total waste of time and money.

“Very small museum, only go to with City Pass”
Reviewed March 29, 2009

Very small, mostly motorcycles and hotrods-if that's your thing you will like it. We thought it was kinda lame. I would only go here with city pass. Located in Balboa park near Air and Space Museum ans Sports Museum, Art Museum, etc.
