Mullin Automotive Museum
Located in Oxnard, California, The Mullin Automotive Museum was founded by Peter Mullin in 2006.

It contains one of the best collections of vintage French automobiles. In addition to the cars, the museum houses Art Deco artwork such as paintings, sculptures, furniture and other objects.
