GREAT Place for families and out of town guests

This is a GREAT place for people to bring out of town guests and families. The car collection is AMAZING and the music boxes is beyond words.

This is a beautiful museum filled with some of the most elegant cars of the early and mid-20th century. Compared to the cars of today, these were masterpieces of art and craftsmanship. This collection of beautiful pieces includes not only the cars, but exquisite hood ornaments of the same era, headlights, hubcaps, and other memorabilia. One thing I found particularly... More

The Nethercutt collection was the highlight of our trip to California. In order to see the musical instruments you have to reserve a guided tour. I highly recommend you do this before arriving at the museum in case it is sold out that day. We originally thought we would spend a few hours at this museum but it was so... More

If you love beautiful things, you'll love this museum! Call in advance so you can take the guided tour. These are offered Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. This is the only way to see most of the collection. It's two hours, and free! You'll see rare cars, musical instruments, chandeliers, furniture, and the like. Can't wait to go back!

The collection of driving experiences at the Nethercutt will blow away any motorhead you know. Pristine example of motor car history make this a must see attraction when in LA. Not only is it free (in Los Angeles, no less) but it also offers garage tours for special groups. Amazing collection, beautifully maintained. And all are drivable. The dessert is... More

This is not a waste of time or effort. You Must take the Weekend private tour which you need to make a reservation to see. It is amazing. You can also go to just the auto collection which is always available without a reservation and no charge. Kids to Senior Citizens will enjoy.

The Nethercutt Collection has the most impressive amount of cars that are not only pretty but they are all functional, all run.

Although I am not a car buff, this collection is astounding and the cars on display are more like works of art than a transportation vehicle! Beautifully restored cars will take you back to an era of beauty, elegance and opulence, and you will not be disappointed. If you register for the Collection tour (across the street) you will be...

We have actually been there three times. Each time we have seen some wonderful, wonderful old cars. The oldest one that was there this time was a 1907 Great Arrow Touring car, as well as a 1913 fire engine, and a 1936 Travelodge (quite the tag-a-long). They also have a 1912 Pullman Railcar that has been refurbished.
