  • A short walk from the San Diego station AIS and Space Museum this Museum offers some gems of automotive history, and they have a PUCH MAXI BJ 78-so one I too. So if the air and SP... Museum visits should take a two hours time and visit the car Museum located in the immediate vicinity. Admission $10 for Erwachsene.Und you have a de Loren (back to the future).

  • I am only lowering my stars because it's tiny, handful of clean cars, random makes and models, did the whole museum in about 15 minutes or less, not bad if you wanna drop 10 bucks on looking at a few cars and you are already out there. If you have questions no staff is available that we saw as well. I hate leaving low reviews but the 5 star and 4 are misleading.
  • Friendly staff. A small but interesting/cute place. You can spend up to an hour there. At gate, admission for adults is $10 but if you check Groupon, it’s $8 for two.
  • Nice friendly staff, ticket price is fair and lots of interesting cars to see. Not too big nor too small and is good for a quick trip. Some beautiful bikes on display too!
  • It is a nice place if you like like cars but it's not free to military you still have to pay but it is not that much 6 dollars
  • Really cool little museum. Good selection of cars that are beautifully presented. Lighting is perfect for photographers, and the cars aren't crammed so tightly together so you can get some really nice shots. Definitely a must visit for anyone in town.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
