Sunny days ahead for the California Automobile Museum

Sunny days ahead for the California Automobile Museum

The California Auto Museum has successfully completed the purchase of its building and surrounding property from the City of Sacramento, achieving a long-held dream of Museum management and enthusiasts. Located at 2200 Front Street in Sacramento’s emerging waterfront district, the Museum also announced it has reached the ambitious goal of raising $750,000 from friends and supporters to replace the badly leaking roof. Construction on the roof replacement will begin this week.

“These two events mark what may be the two most significant achievements in the California Automobile Museum’s 30-year history,” said Tupper Hull, President of the Board of Directors of the California Vehicle Foundation (which operates the Museum). “We are deeply appreciative of the support we have received from the City of Sacramento, involved community members and museum enthusiasts in helping to make these two momentous events possible.”
