Murphy Auto Museum
The Murphy Auto Museum was founded in 2000 by retired Ventura, CA neurosurgeon, Dr. Daniel Murphy. Originally the Museum was a place to house his large Packard collection. Soon, others inquired about keeping their cars with his and the Museum was born. In 2005, it was moved to Statham Blvd. in Oxnard.
In 2014, the museum’s ownership and administration was transferred to Ventura County business owner and car enthusiast, David Neel. His love of automobiles and his commitment to the Museum’s mission statement will ensure its existence into perpetuity.
In 2019, the Museum moved to a new location at 1930 Eastman Ave. Oxnard, CA.
The cars rotate on a continuous basis, keeping the collection fresh and interesting.
The Mission of the Murphy Auto Museum is to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret the history and heritage of the American automobile. We celebrate the automobile and educate the general public, students and enthusiasts regarding the role of the automobile in the Tri-County area.
