Under the Sea

Buckle Up

For those who prefer life in the fast lane check out the Marconi Automotive Museum (Tustin). Take a tour down memory lane with the extensive and impressive historical collection featuring vehicles from around the world. Notable pieces include a sapphire blue FX Ferrari, a Jaguar XJ220, and a Foxfire firetruck. The museum does more than provide a unique experience for its guests; money raised through the rental of the museum goes towards helping at-risk and homeless youth throughout the community.
