I had a great visit to the California Automobile Museum (I think the Foundation is the actual nonprofit entity, but the Museum is what you actually experience). There are cars from the early 1900s like a REO and a Dodge Brothers car to the beautiful Art Deco vehicles of the 1930s to the muscle cars of the 60s & 70s and even some electric and fuel cell cars! The gift shop and the walls have quite a bit of automotive-related art.
