The California Automobile Museum is dedicated to being a teaching resource for our community. In fact, the museum’s mission statement itself includes teaching the story of automobiles. We encourage teachers, as well as parents and students, to enjoy the museum and use it as an educational tool.

As part of this, we offer FREE membership for teachers! To become a member, complete the Teacher Membership Application form.

A frequent stop for school group tours, the California Automobile Museum has many enthusiastic docents and tour options for all age groups. Please visit our School Tour page for more information and reservations.

An Educational Information Packet can also be downloaded which provides information about our museum and programs.
