Located in Sylmar, California (near Los Angeles) the Nethercutt Collection is one of the best in the World and is absolutely FREE! In fact, it isn’t just one car museum, it is two and it is not just a car museum. The Nethercutt Collection is housed in a beautiful building located one one side of Bledsoe Street and the San Sylmar Collection is on the other.
Where the Nethercutt Collection is mostly cars from the early 1900’s up to the 1950’s the Sylmar Collection has the best of the collection on display but the biggest portion of the collection are the musical instruments and car ornaments that are on display.
When we visited San Sylmar (no photos of this collection on this page) we went to see the cars but came away talking about the organs that were played for us. This collection is only available for tours and a reservation is required. The main display area contains the most beautiful cars you will see anywhere and the room is even more magnificent than the cars. It resembles a high end hotel or office building out of the 1930’s with its marble floors and columns.
The Nethercutt Collection is open Tuesday through Saturday and no reservations are required.
