Welcome to The Murphy Auto Museum
The Murphy Auto Museum, located in Oxnard, California, is a collection of over 70 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!

This car is #335 of #448 which were manufactured in 1995. A car just like this one holds the world record of 175.885 mph for 24 hours (4,221 miles), a record which stands to this day. This car has its original Torch Red red leather interior, 6 speed transmission and 34,000 miles and has the improved 405 HP engine. This is one of the nicest examples you will find and we are glad to have it in our museum.
