Automobile Driving Museum

Automobile Driving Museum http://www.automobiledrivingmuseum.org Car Museum That Takes Their Guests For Rides 610 Lairport Street. El Segundo, CA 90245
Automobile Driving Museum was founded in 2001 by Earl Rubenstein and Stanley Zimmerman, long time automobile collectors and friends. They had dreamed about a museum that allowed the public to actually sit in and experience riding in a Classic and Special Interest Vehicle. For many years, Rubenstein and Zimmerman would attend classic automobile exhibits and car shows where nearly every vehicle displayed a “LOOK, BUT DO NOT TOUCH” sign. Their philosophy on the other hand was to permit visitors to climb into the rumble seats, sit behind the steering wheels and reminisce about their first or desired automobile. On occasion, when someone requested rides, they would make special arrangements to accommodate. In 2001, when a garage in West Los Angeles became available, they formed the Automobile Driving Museum. The mission: to give the public an opportunity to experience classic and special interest automobiles as moving vehicles and historic art forms. In addition, to preserving and maintaining orphan vehicles no longer being manufactured such as Studebaker, Packard, Stutz, and Nash AMC. The Automobile Driving Museum moved to its present location at 610 Lairport Street in El Segundo in 2007 .The museum occupies over an acre of land and has 40,000 square feet for automobile display, storage, repair, and restoration. The museum also has large meeting rooms and party spaces available for rent. It is open Tuesday through Sunday 10:00AM to 4:00 PM. On Saturdays the public is invited to touch and sit in cars and on Sundays to ride with docent drivers in their dream vehicle on public streets near LAX.

Unique Car Museum and Event Venue that gives rides to guests every Sunday!

Mission: The ADM exists to preserve automotive history, interpret the historical significance and provide visitors with the opportunity to take a ride in one of the museum’s historic, classic and antique automobiles. By doing this, we will enrich the lives of all people seeking to grasp the importance of automotive history by providing a facility where one can get a feel of the past. The museum also serves as a central meeting place for car clubs, car enthusiasts and the community. The museum maintains an accurate source of reference material on the history of cars and the automotive industry.

Help Save the ADM! Please share and help us spread the word!

WE NEED YOUR HELP:
Our museum was mandated to temporarily close due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which greatly affected our financial stability.

Our organization depends greatly on funds from facility rentals, admission to the museum, and donations from guests, but this closure has ceased all normal income.

We are all too aware of the financial hardships placed on our community members and local businesses, but only with your support and generosity can we continue to achieve our goals and preserve the Automobile Driving Museum for future generations.

Contributions ARE tax-deductible. Automobile Driving Museum is a California 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. And don’t miss our Summer Swing Nights fundraiser as another way that you can help!

Now the situation is reversed. After a Music Theatre BFA from Western Michigan University and a stint in NYC, he fled the frigid, snowy North for the Pacific Coast and has settled in quite nicely, thanks for asking. SAG-AFTRA/AEA

I am unable to purchase tickets to the Sept 19 event. Eventbrite will not let me complete the transaction even with all the fields filled in. Eventbrite is also asking for waaaay too much personal information; my home address cannot be relevant to this event. Hopefully I can buy a pair of tickets onsite.
Relive the days when cars were beautiful but unsafe.
A few images from the Cruise-In on May 23.
A great time at the Automobile Driving Museum for their Cruise-In. Check out my latest video "Automobile Driving Museum Cruise-In" Watch Now:
THIS WAS A TERRIBLE IDEA! WE WENT DOWN THERE AN WERE APPALLED AT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IGNORING EVERY POSSIBLE GUIDELINE. YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD MUSEUM PEOPLE CIRCULATING TO MAKE THEM PUT ON THEIR MASKS! I HAD ONE IDIOT WHO THOUGHT STICKING HIS HEAD IN MY WINDOW WAS OK. THIS IS WHY THINGS ARE GOING TO GET WORSE. SHAME YOU COULDN'T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND POLICE THNIGS.
