The museum is housed in the historic Campo Feldspar Mill which is located within the community of Campo, California. The Mill is a landmark, representing some of the Industry that was once located in the historic community of Campo. The museum has been located in the mill since 1987 and has become a home for more than 200 motor transport vehicles. Within the Mill the Motor Transport Museum has a complete auto and fabrication shop and display area where the vehicles are restored and showcased. The Mill is also in the process of restoration, with plans for the addition of new showroom. The recent addition of our new Research building on the property shelters a unique collection of archival reference books, manuals and literature.
Although we are a home for the preservation and restoration of more than 200 motor transport vehicles, we also have an eclectic collection of industrial equipment ranging from old belt drive machinery, single cylinder engines, electric generators, quarry mining equipment, rain makers, olive presses, anti-aircraft searchlight and even a custom built Model A log splitter to name a few.
At the Museum, the public not only view vehicles and equipment of the past, but have an opportunity to see the process and progress of their preservation and restoration. They can gain knowledge and understanding of the history of the Motor Transport Industry and the automotive pioneers, who have made a significant contribution towards its origin, development and progress.
The museum facility at 31949 Highway 94 in Campo, CA is open to the public every Saturday from 9AM to 5 PM. Special arrangements may be made for tours during the week by calling the Museum at: (619) 478 2492
