  • 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
  • Went to the Car Corral to see what was available for sale. The sales staff were rude and very immature. I will not be going back. The next time I want to go to a Car Museum, I'll go to Reno to a real car museum. The museum lost one of its greatest assets when Mark (Sales Manager) Left to find greener pastures The worst thing is that I was going to consign 5 vehicles to the sales floor. Glad I left when I did.
  • Tons of great and beautiful cars. Hot not great a/c but hardly took away from the experience.
  • This is an amazing museum. We went here to kill time before a different event we were attending in Sacramento. The tour guide was so nice, funny and knowledgeable. They are having some roof issues causing the cars to not be in their normal spots. But we will definitely be back for another visit when they get everything all fixed. Wonderful place to take the kids!
  • Here is presented the best of America's Iron. For over a century, four wheels, a few pistons and a couple of accessories (like a steering wheel and brakes) made life easier. Starting with these basic ingredients, entrepreneurs, designers and engineers added sheet metal and created speed. This remarkable museum contains many contraptions, the successful ones and the failures. Restorations are excellent. Some you can touch. Others speak for themselves. The Docents love "their" cars and show respect for the engineers and assembly line workers that made these miracles possible. Good display of alternatly powered vehicles. Easy free parking. Wheelchair accessible including bathrooms.
