Historic Car Adventure

Hidden away in Tustin is the Marconi Automotive Museum.

It is packed with a wide variety of enthusiast cars ranging from muscle cars, Ferrari’s, Lamborghinis, historic vehicles, formula racing cars, and many from the movies. There are over 100 to drool over. While most car enthusiasts could spend a good day wandering through the collection, our day trip includes some pretty nice places to eat or enjoy a beer before heading back to the Tustin Metrolink station.

About the museum

In 1994 Dick and John Marconi donated their entire car collection to the Marconi Foundation for Kids. Since then, it has grown to over 100 vehicles totaling 60 million dollars. The museum and collection are now used as a tool to generate money for children charities throughout Orange County.

Getting there
The museum is 2 miles from the Tustin Station. While you might feel energized to make the walk down Edinger Avenue we recommend a ride share service!

Places to eat (and drink)!

After spending time at the museum there are a number of great spots to grab a bite or beer. Many are within walking distance or just a quick Uber or Lyft ride away.
