For a small museum, it had a lot of interesting types of cars. The owner was very friendly and he even sold us an old sign we were interested it and even came down on the price.

We just love a good collection of vintage cars and the Route 66 Auto Museum was one of the best. It was well kept, well organized and had more than the cars, it had auto history items, signs, tools, engines, etc. etc.

The car museum is definitely worth a visit. Lots of nice cars and trucks and artifacts from years gone by. Nicely displayed and clean. The kind of cars you'd be happy touring Rte. 66 in! There is also a nice gift store.

Stumbled upon this hidden place by accident, enjoyed every minute of it. The museum is not big, but we had such a nice time.

Not much to see in Santa Rosa, but if you are here, this is worth a bit of your free time. Right on main drag (old 66), with a small admission fee. Some nice old cars, wide variety, with no real rhyme or reason as...More
