San Diego Automotive Museum, San Diego Reviews - Write a Review
Nice friendly staff, ticket price is fair and lots of interesting cars to see. Not too big nor too small and is good for a quick trip. Some beautiful bikes on display too!
Really cool little museum. Good selection of cars that are beautifully presented. Lighting is perfect for photographers, and the cars aren't crammed so tightly together so you can get some really nice shots. Definitely a must visit for anyone in town.
If cars/motorcycles are your thing, this museum is a must. Displayed beautifully with a lot to look at no matter what's exhibiting. Have been here many times, but my favorite was the BSA show. I mean, these motorcycles where beautiful!! Check it out👍🏽
Nice collection and decent price compared to the other major attractions. We went during the "Japanese Steel" collection, which had some interesting commuter cars as well as sports cars. They also gave a vast automotive library with an old school catalog.
Honestly a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be. We visited during the "Japanese Steel" exhibit, so I saw some really neat JDM cars. The most crazy part was seeing a 2000 GT in person. Such a rare and valuable car and I got to stand 3 feet away from it. They also had a Countach on display!! Very cool to see a classic Lambo up close. Pretty good selection of old motorcycles too if you're a bike lover. Unfortunately, we did finish looking at everything in about 20ish minutes due to how small the museum is. Overall it's still worth seeing if you're in the area, but don't plan on making a day of it, as there is really not a lot to see.
