Welcome to The Murphy Auto Museum
The Murphy Auto Museum, located in Oxnard, California, is a collection of over 60 beautiful vintage automobiles and Americana housed inside an 30,000 square foot facility. Our unique collection spans from 1903 to present day.
We are also home to one of the largest H/O scale train layouts, with many scale miles of track. Enjoy watching passenger and freight trains as they wind their way through cities, towns and the countryside.
We are open on Wednesdays, 6pm-10pm and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am-4pm, or by appointment for special groups. We have exciting new exhibits planned each quarter in our main showroom and various community activities throughout the year. We hope you come visit us soon!
1954 Jewel Travel Trailer
This adorable 15 foot trailer is a classic mid-century design call a "Canned Ham". Called such, because it's shaped like a canned ham of course. The interior of this Jewel is all original, with stove/oven combo, original linoleum flooring and icebox. Check out the stunning rounded birch cabinets giving these classic trailers the other nickname of "Birch Beauties". It's all decked out with vintage camping gear and well appointed with fabulous fifties memorabilia.
