The San Diego Auto Museum is interesting, but not overwhelming
One of them was the San Diego Auto Museum. Located in an area with several other museums in Balboa Park, the San Diego Auto Museum is a combination of spectacular and not-so-spectacular.
If you’re really into cars, the San Diego Auto Museum may not be the most impressive collection you’ll ever see, but it’s worth the eight bucks admission. I think it’s probably meant to appeal more toward non-car folks, though. It sort of has an intellectual, general history/culture feel as opposed to something geared toward enthusiasts. But really, for as influential as southern California is supposed to be for automotive culture, I couldn’t find too many other places like this to visit in San Diego. Visit http://sdautomuseum.org/ for more information.
Anyway, if you aren’t going to be in San Diego anytime soon, or you want to see the Volkswagen display before it’s replaced by Woodies on February 3, you’re in luck. I’m including the usual collection of mediocre photos, which can be seen in the slideshow below.
