The Nethercutt Museum

1956-packard

Before I made it to the honey shop last week, I almost thought about stepping into the huge building on Bledsoe Street and Bradley Avenue. I’m glad I didn’t pass up the Nethercutt Museum this past weekend.

I’d say it’s worth the money to check out the the classy joint, but they don’t even charge admission. I’ll say it’s definitely worth your time. I’m not a car enthusiast, but anyone who can appreciate beauty will enjoy gawking at over 120 antique, vintage, black iron and classic automobiles. If you call to reserve a tour, you’ll be shown the Nethercutt Collection – 50 more beauts, mechanical musical instruments and other early 20th century knickknacks in a stunning marble showroom.

It’s really a gem to have this so close by — it’s the only automobile museum in the Valley and the Petersen is the only other in the L.A. area. Stop by for pretty toys and a classic ambiance.

The Nethercutt Museum is located at 15151 Bledsoe St. in Sylmar. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Free admission.

The Nethercutt Collection is located at 15200 Bledsoe St. in Sylmar. Entrance is free and by guided tour only Thursday-Saturday at 10 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. Tours last approximately two hours. Make reservations at least a month ahead of time by calling 818.364.6464.
