  • Great cars and lots of good info. Plan on a few hours if you are interested in Auto history.
  • Museum has more then just cars. A lot of interaction with displays​ and educational experiences . But I came for the cars. Cars range from the 1900's to today. To the cars you can get into four pictures and some of the displays have interactivity to them with parts you can turn or touch. Parking is free. The museum is a five-minute drive from Old Town Sacramento so if you're in the area I would suggest going
  • Had a chance to talk with a real nice group of guys was invited to come back as a guest. Looking forward to returning
  • Paying the full price entry to see a museum with cars all mixed from different years, not having access to all areas... What a disappointment coming all the way from SF to see this. If they are in construction they shouldn’t be charging full price, furthermore the museum that as no organization.
  • Took My 6 year old there from the doctors to celebrate him being free from leukemia he loves cars especially fast ones. {had never been there before} The Docent was very nice and pleasant The docent told my son he could get on the fire truck and turn the siren mine and the docents attention was distracted by another person. A volunteer yelled at my kid for being on the vehicle he had permission to be on made him cry then mouthed off to me. I will not be back ever! I had to calm down to write this review. Big man yelling at a 6 year old cancer survivor you should be proud of yourself pos
