This museum is a hidden gem with a great small collection. The docents are extremely knowledgable and friendly. The one down side is it is not air conditioned and we went on a 100* day, I got too warm for us to enjoy fully

Well laid out collection of old classic cars. Docens were very informative and friendly. Cars range from Model T's to Deloreans. Also a good selection of old camper trailers dating back to the heydays.

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
