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.


To The Rescue! The Fire Trucks and People that Saved our Cities

March 16, 2017 through May 29, 2017

Since the invention of the automobile, fire fighters have used that technology to improve the speed and how they are able to fight fires.
Explore all sorts of fire-fighting vehicles, equipment, and stories in this exhibit. Many of the trucks and other objects on display were local to Sacramento and saved our city!


Sacramento’s Customs & Hot Rods

Tentative dates: February 2018 through June 2018

Los Angeles may get all the attention, but Sacramento was creating customs just as early! This exhibit will showcase the legends of Sacramento that helped to influence custom automobiles throughout Northern California (and Southern California as well)! If you haven’t heard of Harry Westergard, Dick Bertolucci, or Sam Barris, then you are missing out. Not to mention the eye-candy that is the beautiful craftsmanship of customs.


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 or email our Membership Coorindator.
