CALIFORNIA

This interactive collection of data includes both public and private major museums across the state. If the facility has an active website, all you have to do to reach it is click on the name. We've done the work for you.

By the way, auto/transportation museums are not included in this particular guide. Why? Because there are so many throughout the nation that we offer a separate site for them. To access that site, just click right here.
