History Of The Museum 

Towe Ford Museum - California Automobile Museum  

In order to see where we are going, we must know where we have come from. It is our mission to preserve & share the past, present & future of the automobile in California. This mission began in 1982 when our visionary founder Dick Ryder was inspired to start an automobile museum here in Sacramento. This lead to the acquisition of the Towe Auto Museum's collection form Deer Lodge, Montana. After this acquisition, a growing collection lead to the creation of The California Automobile Museum.
