I was in Oxnard CA and knew there was a car museum, must admit I love cars but never heard of Peter Mullin and his museum. I called by and there was a tour just started and they let me join it. The Museum and the cars are amazing, the tour covers the history of the cars and Peter Mullin's... More

This is a must see collection although part of it is on display at the Petersen. Still there is plenty to see and the staff are very knowledgeable. Easily spend a few hours. Parking is plentiful and free. The Specialty of the collection is counted by the significance of the cars on show.

This musuem is full of historical cars of all kinds, from the early cars and semi carriages to new 270 MPH racers. It is a one of kind collection that would be special for anyone that likes cars. Check the schedule on line because it has limited hours, but do visit when you can. I have recommended the museum to... More

Peter Mullins brought the Chandler museum after the death of Otis Chandler. Completely remodeled the Museum and moved in the Mullin collection. Bugatti and art deco is the core but vintage racing and auto memorabilia is also at the core of this must see museum. Not open a lot so check the web site. But also consider the "off day"... More

The Mullin Car Museum is a private museum owned by Mr. Mullin. It is open on certain days by reservation. The museum is dedicated to showing French cars from the Art Nouveau period. There are many Bugattis and other unique cars on display. We had a docent, Mr. Mullin's brother, give us a tour, explaining the history of each car.... More

This museum has the most beautiful early French automobiles. If you have any interest in automobiles, see this museum. It explains the early history of automobile design. It is difficult to see because it is only open 2 days a month.

This is one of our favorite stops in Oxnard, it is home to some of the most beautiful historic automobiles that you will ever find. It's only open a few days a month, so make sure to plan your trip accordingly.

So I went to the Mullin yesterday and spent a very interesting 2+ hours being shown around by the very knowledgeable Rick Eberst. I was blown away by the quality of the exhibits and by the way they are displayed. Of course no touching but you can get right up to the cars, there are no ropes, and you can... More

The number one attraction in Oxnard, California might also be the most difficult to get to. That's because the Mullin Automotive Museum is only open for a few hours every two weeks, but trust me if you are in the Los Angeles area on one of the days it is open, it's more than worth it. Peter Mullin is a... More

Small, but well laid out, and one of our number was a model railway enthusiast so that was appreciated too. Nice idea to have some fashions of the era alongside the cars
