Murphy Auto Museum - Oxnard

See over 45 vintage and classic cars at the Murphy Auto Museum at 2230 Statham Blvd in Oxnard. The 18,000 sq ft museum was founded in 2000 by retired neurosurgeon Dan Murphy, who formed a non-profit museum for the purpose of displaying automative history here in Ventura County.

Recently, the museum’s ownership and administration was transferred to Ventura County business owner and car enthusiast, David Neel. His love of automobiles and his commitment to the Museum’s mission statement will ensure its existence into perpetuity.

The cars in the "permanent" collection are rotated periodically. There are also temporary exhibits  brought into the museum over the course of year, such as vintage trailers, vintage pickups and station wagons, vintage corvettes, vintage scooters and more.

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 1,800 foot 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.

The suggested donation to the museum is $9 for adults. Children 12 and under are free. Active military with ID or in uniform are also free.  Open year-round on Saturdays from 9am to 4pm and Sundays 10am to 4pm. April through September, the museum is also open on Wednesdays from 6pm to 10pm and Fridays from 10am to 4pm.
