Student Visits

The museum is pleased to offer special tours for school classes of up to 30 students. These tours give more history about the building, history of the museum, and how the museum functions. Participants are guided through several signature exhibits with more detail than can be found on the narratives or videos. These personal touches add a lot of character to your visit, and there is always time for questions. Believe us when we say there are new questions every time we do this!

If you're interested, please fill out this form and we will contact you with more information.


In order to assure that your group has an outstanding experience while visiting the San Diego Automotive Museum, we ask that group leaders read and sign our Guidelines and Regulations. It is our desire for each guest to walk away with a greater sense of appreciation for our fine collection of automobiles and motorcycles, along worth the history and transportation in America.

Please review our regulations with your adult chaperones and your entire group prior to entering the museum. This is an opportunity for everyone to learn a new level of “respect” for the history and heritage of all museums here in beautiful Balboa Park. We appreciate you visiting us! Please remember to sign and bring the Guidelines and Regulations with you the day or your visit. Our museum store staff will collect this and any pre-arranged admission fees, if applicable.
