Welcome to The Murphy Auto Museum
The Murphy Auto Museum, located in Oxnard, California, is a collection of over 90 beautiful vintage automobiles and Americana housed inside a 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 Saturdays and Sundays, January through March, from 10am-4pm and Fridays 10am-4pm April through December, 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!
