California Automobile Museum houses a collection of over 150 classic cars, racers, trucks, and early automobile models. The mission of the California Automobile Museum is to preserve and exhibit the history of the automobile.

The Museum was founded in 1983 as the Towe Ford Museum, displaying the most extensive collection of Fords in the world. In 1997, the Museum was renamed to the Towe Auto Museum, as it began showing vehicles of all makes and models.

In 2009, the name of the Museum was changed to the California Automobile Museum to reflect its expanded mission.

The cars on display represent a cross-section of vehicles driven in the USA over the last 120 years.

Many of the automobiles are on loan from private exhibitors and collectors, allowing for a continually changing presentation on the story of the automobile.
