  • Get to the museum at 10am opening and get to take all the nice photos! Currently, the museum is having a Wagon theme. You're in for a treat! Be sure to pick up a Balboa Park map after you enter! Bring the whole family over!
  • 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.
  • Really awesome cars on exhibit in a large space. It's great to go to if you are a car enthusiast.
  • I wasn't really impressed. There are a couple unique cars but nothing extraordinary.
  • I like this museum. There are many cool cars and it is well laid out. There are certain Tuesdays each month where the museums are free.
