We were unprepared for our visit to the Nethercutt, as we were only stopping by because we were passing through San Fernando. While there is an impressive collection on immediate display in the main reception area, the bulk of the collection is housed in a six story building that required two hours to tour. That requires an appointment, which we... More

We got passes, having heard of its reputation as a great collection of vintage automobiles. It does not disappoint - many great examples from the early days of motorcars. Some unique examples that will make your jaw drop (no spoilers). After you've been blown away and exhausted from the floor collection, the tour continue upstairs for hood ornaments and other...

Even if you are not car crazy, this collection of iconic vintage cars is awe inspiring Reservations are recommended to see the collection and for the free two hour tour. The collection of cars are displayed in a replica of a luxury auto showroom, reminding one of an old movie palace and across the street in a more warehouse like... More

Loved this place and its tour guide, as it is a private car collection set in the Northern part of Los Angeles County. Takes you back in time and it is a pleasure to see how the history of automation has changed in design over the years. Although it is a trip outside the traditional Los Angeles fixtures, it is...

It's a very long drive to get there, but totally worth it. This is a car collection like no other. They had a Silver Cloud Rolls Royce in every model made. These cars are meticulously restored, and every car is driven once a year. Another fascinating collection are the musical instruments. I won't spoil the surprise, but the organ will... More

The main museum is open all day and you do not need reservations. The special part with better cars and musical instruments is open to tours with reservations. Best thing it is always free. The cars are restored to showroom new condition and almost all of them run and are driven at least once a year. They have cars that... More

The collection, not just the cars but everything, is extraordinary. While not on the "beaten trail" one of the best collect you will ever see (and not just cars!).

These days we take so many things in cars and musical devices for granted. This place is very useful in learning about old car designs, the design decisions and specially how market evolved. The (self playing) retro musical instruments collection they have is beyond words. Must visit for people who have even slightest interest in understanding history and urban culture.

A fabulous collection! More first, second and third place winners of the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance than any other place. You can get very close to the exhibits. Mechanical musical instruments are fantastic. Well worth seeing. Free entry and parking a plus. Important to sign up for the tour to see the best parts out the museum. Don't forget to... More
