A space full of beautiful cars. The sales section has plenty of classic cars for sale. The big tire near the rest rooms is a great workout.

Big indoor warehouse space of some very cool wheels of the past, see how the trends have changed the look of the way we travel and enjoy some memories of the past.

This was the best collection of the oldest cars you will ever see. Too much to take in quickly, and the quality of the restorations were impeccable, evenour teenager daughterswere in awe of these cars!

Decent collection of cars but building needs major overhaul as it leaks badly. On rainy day buckets were everywhere and parts of museum were closed because of water hazards. Signs were competent and some interesting cars and motorcycles on display. Not a large museum but...More

They do have a large area within the museum that would be appropriate for a fund raiser. The rest of your questions I would suggest that you contact the museum directly at (916) 442-6802. I used to have a car on display... More
