  • I had been to the Automotive Museum several years ago and loved it, as any car enthusiast would. I just returned from a long trip to San Diego with my family and so I was very excited to go back to th...  read more »

  • Wonderful collection of vintage cars and trucks. For auto lovers, this is a must see! I do, however feel that they could be more financially very able as a museum, if the directors decided to lower the entry price. They should also consider giving greater run of the museum on free Tuesdays.
  • This was only the second car museum I have been in in my life, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. While this wasn't on the scale of a manufacturer's museum, given the size they had quite an impressive collection. Many unique vehicles from throughout history. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Balboa park to stop here (though kids might not enjoy this one too much).
  • Part of Balboa Parks museums. Its a great museum for looking at old cars and motorcycles. Takes about 45 minutes if you want to look around and do some brief reading.
  • Really awesome cars on exhibit in a large space. It's great to go to if you are a car enthusiast.
  • Alright collection of cars. Much smaller than we expected. Really friendly older gentleman inside who was very knowledgeable about the old pick up truck. Even invited us back to take pictures of us sitting in the back. Without him, it would have been a bit boring.
