Expansion happened every year since opening in 2009

Starting with just under 5,000 square feet, we've grown to over 20,000 square feet plus another 5,000 square feet in off site restoration.

  • Numerous well known racing legends have viewed the vehicles and left their mark on this Paso Robles grown establishment.

    Just a few are shown below

  • Most of the vehicles on display have been restored to the original condition as they were when first built.

    Some of the cars came off the track and required little to no restoration.

This is a unique collection in that you can see, up close and personal, cars which were well known on the various racing circuits.

What we were expecting was not at all what we got. It was so much more. The displays were very informative and awesome to look at. We didn't get to see it all. It's a lot bigger than expected. Plan on going again in the next couple of weeks.

Estrella Warbird and Auto Museum is THE place to go! Recently hosted a guided tour and flyover for a birthday and it was even better than we could have imagined. Kids and parents both enjoyed every bit. Staff was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and extra helpful in helping us execute our day. Letting us use outside space to picnic helping store the cake and everything inbetween. You could spend days here and still find and learn something amazing about the history and events. Definitely a place worth going out of your way to explore!
