Come on down to see the movie, cars inside the museum and the massive train display. Something for everyone!
Bullitt -In one of his most famous roles, it stars, Steve McQueen as tough-guy police detective Frank Bullitt. Bullitt's 10 minute and 53 second exciting car chase through the streets of San Francisco is regarded as one of the most influential in movie history. Frank Bullitt's car is a 1968 Ford Mustang 390 GT 2+2 Fastback. The bad guys drive a 1968 Dodge Charger 440 Magnum.
We open Fridays at 10 am. So come early for the cars, stay for the movie! Movie night walk-ins are okey-dokey but we would appreciate a RSVP.

Cruise into the Murphy in your classic car or hot rod on Friday nights for a casual get together in our parking lot to kick tires with local car enthusiasts.

So come on down and spend your Fridays nights at the Murphy Auto Museum and stay for the Friday night movie for $10 per person.
October 5 - December 28, 2014
In the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, cars were big. Really big. Dashboards were made of metal with just a few soft surfaces, engines had very large cubic inch displacements and you could fit all of your friends comfortably into the car. Everyone was happy. Soaring gas prices and government mileage regulations meant automobile designers had to design cars with fuel efficient engines and make cars lighter and smaller to remove weight. How boring.
We’re celebrating Big American 8 Cylinder Power. Come to The Murphy to view our exhibit featuring Packards, Lincolns, Chryslers and Cadillacs in GIANT proportions. We’ll give you the stats on length, weight and mpg’s which will make you feel a lot better about what you are driving, although not anywhere near as cool or fun.
