California Automobile Museum Wiki


Over 72,000 square feet of car-filled museum space awaits at the California Automobile Museum, one of the best spots in Sacramento to learn all about cars and their place in California culture. There are over 150 classic cars, muscle cars, and race cars within the museum, the vintage and current displays attracting guests far and wide, whether they are car junkies or just curious car onlookers. The museum aims to ‘preserve, exhibit, and teach the story of automobiles and their influence on our lives’, something your group can enjoy during any onsite educational or public tour.

During any of the many differently featured one-hour museum tours your group will see cars from 1885 to 2011, from Model T’s to Lamborghinis. Kit Cars and classic rats will take you back in time, and Packards and race cars will bring you right back to the present, each time in California car culture represented well here. Be sure to check out all the fun onsite exhibits, one of our favorites being the highly informative Alternative Propulsion exhibit. Learn all about clean fuel options at this exhibit, or perhaps head on over to Spark Plug Square and learn the basics if your group is full of younger ones. The various tours for students here meet common core standards, another big bonus for student groups!
