The museum also displays a restored steam locomotive, a luxury private railcar, and a collection of hood and furniture ornaments.

  • It is a classic car exhibition Museum in the world. It is 10 minutes place more people than mania. It is always crowded and free museums, so that. When we were their were so many people you so maybe better staggered.

  • I was born and raised in Los Angeles and even worked for many years near the Nethercutt Collection in the San Fernando Valley. But I had never visited until yesterday with my husband. First it is free...  more »

  • Superb, diverse collection of painstakingly restored cars, including lineups of Rolls and Pierce Arrows. Comprehensive automotive reference library. Very nice atmosphere. Free admission!
  • 5 Star +++! The museum is free, BUT RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Beautifully and lovingly restored antique cars and elegant and intricate 'player' (like piano or wind-up) music boxes. You will see AND HEAR the third largest theatre pipe organ in the World. Guided tour lasts about two hours, but make lots more time to see aisles and aisles of restored cars in the other building. Then go see their restored train and feel transported back in time and see how the upper class traveled in style. Free parking.
  • This is a great free museum located in Sylmar, Ca. If you enjoy viewing classic cars then this is the place to be. The museum is divided between two buildings right across from each other. The main museum is the one story building and you can park right next to it. I particularly enjoyed the guided tours and the silent movie films events held throughout the year, all of which are free, which are across the street in the three story building. You simply sign up ahead of time to reserve a spot. I thought the inside was very beautiful especially the second floor with the curved staircase. At the very top there are no cars but there is a display of awards the cars have won in shows as well as antique furniture and instruments that still play! I thought that was very cool.
  • Definitely a must go place if you are visitor or even local to southern California. Great car collections and the music box performance is something you definitely don't want to miss. And it's FREE!
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Nethercutt Museum, especially the guided tour (reserve your spot online in advance). Kyle who leads the tour is absolutely amazing and so engaging; he brings the exhibits to life with his enthusiastic and knowledgeable presentation. Their automotive collection is spectacular, but they have much more than cars to enjoy and learn about. To top it off, it's a beautiful facility, easy to get to, with free parking and admission. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could!
