A collection of more than 100 vehicles valued at $60,000,000, including Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, muscle cars, race cars and motorcycles is housed at the Marconi. Dick and John Marconi established The Marconi Foundation For Kids in 1994 by donating the building and the entirety of their collection. Each year, the museum donates a portion of its net earnings from sponsored events and admission fees to charitable causes and organizations that assist underprivileged children.
The Marconi Automotive Museum is located in the heart of Orange County at 1302 Industrial Dr,. Tustin, CA 92780. The museum is tucked away in an industrial park off of Redhill Ave in Tustin, which is a town bordering Irvine, CA. The beautiful Tustin Foothills are just to the north and the county seat of Santa Ana sits to the west of Tustin.
The museum shares its classic car collection with its visitors, including iconic movie and TV cars, such as the BatMobile and The General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard TV show. The car enthusiast will love seeing a variety of muscle cars, race cars, motorcycles and memorabilia. The Marconi is also Orange County California’s Premier Event Venue, where a variety of special events are held each year, surrounded by the unique car collection. It’s a truly unique venue for a wedding or company celebration.
