Murphy Auto Museum - Oxnard

See over 40 classic cars, from a 1915 Ford Model T to a 1932 Plymouth Coupe Street Rod to a 1956 Packard Carribean 2 door hardtop at the Murphy Auto Museum at 2230 Statham Blvd., Oxnard.  This museum opened in August 2002 and is 16,000 square feet in size.

The Murphy Auto Museum was founded by Dan Murphy, a retired neurosurgeon in Ventura, who formed a non-profit museum for the purpose of displaying automative history here in Ventura County.  Donations to the museum are tax deductible and are always welcome to maintain and upkeep the facility.

There is also vintage clothing on display from each decade, going back to the 1890s. Men's and women's fashons are displayed on mannequins placed adjacent to cars of the same era.  There is also a HUGE model railroad on display at the museum, courtesy of the Gold Coast Modular Railroad Club.  This is one of the largest model railroad displays I've ever seen (see video below).

The suggested (but not required) donation to the museum is $9 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.  Open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information visit or call 805.487.4333.  Additionally, the museum can be opened by special arrangement for groups and schools as well as private or business functions!  This would make for an AWESOME field trip!
