  • . Its a little out of the way but well worth the drive. You must make reservations to go into the other building to see where the cool cars are. The music room at the top was great

  • Excellent museum of old cars, it is very tidy and the cars are in perfect condition, they have a great collection. Spend a day exploring some of the best examples in automobile history.

  • I had never heard of it and was a little confused when we were told we weren't going with a group of friends. And I'm actually glad we did! It is one of the most interesting museums in southern California. I will be recommending this to everyone who asks what to do. Just needs good food nearby.
  • The main museum is open to the public without reservations, but there are more collections only available through reservations, so if you want to see it all, paln ahead. Wonderful showroom full of amazing cars from several decades, most from the 1920s. There is a steam locomotive on the side that has tours at 12:30 and 3:30, don't miss it. Truly a spectacular collection.
  • Drop what your doing and get family and friends together. Go see Beautiful Works of Automotive History.. And enjoy the stories your parents will share of their ," historical times in the cars they drove. " ..
  • Every vehicle was a work of art. The staff and currator were amazing and extremely knowledgeable. The total experience was outstanding and will definitely visit again and again.
  • Found out about this place after seeing it on IG news feed. If your like me and found out they are already completely booked through March be prepared to come early. Got here at 10:10am and a huge line wrapped around to Hope St. Bummed I couldn't make the Infinity Room(They closed it for the day around 11:30). Our wait time was 2 hrs to get inside. Will try to come again around 8:30-9 to try to make the Infinity Room on the weekend.
