The San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park is proud to announce the opening of its new exhibit, Icons: Cars that Drove Our Imagination. The exhibit will run until June 1, 2019. Sometimes, a vehicle becomes iconic for its accessibility, affordability and endearment to the masses. The Volkswagen Bug, for example. Certain models are etched in the public psyche for what they brought to the industry. The Porsche 356 and the Ford Mustang are such vehicles. Pop culture also generates icons. Steve McQueen’s 1968 Mustang from the movie Bullitt and the custom “Captain America” Harley Davidson Chopper from the movie Easy Rider, for example. The vehicles featured here pay homage to automotive excellence and reverence.
Hours: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Kids under age 6 are admitted free. Balboa Park Explorer Passes are accepted.
