Baby Jesus and the SuperSonic!

*Nativity handmade by Karibu, Gifts with Humanity

This holiday season, the Automobile Driving Museum will be exhibiting one of the largest private collections of Nativity Scenes in the country. With 325 Nativity Scenes of various shapes and sizes, museum visitors will enjoy the festive, timeless and classic pictorial scenes. The nativity scenes will be on exhibit among the more than 70 classic and historic cars on display at the Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo from November 25, 2008 through January 4, 2009.

The collection has been gathered from all over the world including Russia, South America, Mexico, United Kingdom and Italy. Along with the exhibit is a special children’s area. Books, puzzles, puppets and other hands-on items will be available for kids under 10 to enjoy.

The Automobile Driving Museum will also be accepting new toys for its annual toy collection drive. We invite visitors to bring a toy when they come to the museum. Toys will be distributed to needy children through the El Segundo Fire Department and Kiwanis.

The Automobile Driving Museum is located at 610 Lairport Street, El Segundo. It is open weekends, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Tuesday through Friday by appointment; closed Mondays. Tickets are by a suggested $5 donation. For more information, visit the museum’s website at or call (310) 909-0950.

The Automobile Driving Museum is one of the only known museums to offer short rides in one of its vehicles. “Rides” in select museum vehicles are on Sundays only. To see a full list of cars in the collection and more information about the museum, visit
