Upcoming Exhibits

Upcoming or rotating exhibits at the California Automobile Museum are one of a kind. Our curator hand picks the cars that are on display which you can see inside the Museum for only a limited time. These are unique exhibits to Sacramento and the only one of their kind in the world. We completely rely on our own resources to coordinate the vehicles on display.


Mustang vs. Camaro: What Side Are You On?

Mustang vs Camaro California Automobile Museum Exhibit Promo

June 20, 2015 through October 18, 2015

Has there ever been a rivalry more discussed, more analyzed, or more enjoyed than the Ford Mustang versus the Chevrolet Camaro? Come and decide for yourself which car deserves your loyalty and admiration.

The California Automobile Museum will be displaying Mustangs and Camaros from throughout their years, comparing and contrasting the cars in good times — and in bad. These pony cars will be from the first generation in the 1960s and into modern-day Mustangs and Camaros. The competition between Mustang and Camaro goes beyond stock cars, however, and we will be featuring specialty vehicles of each as well.

Future Museum-Wide Exhibit Transformation

All of us at the California Automobile Museum are excited for the prospect of a complete renovation of our current facilities. A new roof and much improved heating and cooling are just the beginning! While our plans are not yet final, we have a clear vision of goals to achieve to bring our beloved Museum into the present and future. An expansion to the building moves some of our current services and provides the Museum with almost 50% more square footage for exhibition space! Below is the conceptual plan for the new layout of exhibits within the Museum. Please note that this is very much a work in progress and may change considerably before the final product is complete. However, we wanted to get you as excited as we are about the amazing possibilities of a redesigned museum! Enjoy this sneak peak.



Museum members will enjoy free admission throughout the duration of these exhibits along with special discounts applied in the Giftshop and tickets to Museum-sponsored events. To learn more about these exhibits and membership options, please call (916) 442-6802.
