Escondido, California: Deer Park Winery and Auto Museum

More than just wine and cars. Opened by the late real estate millionaire Robert Knapp in 1979, who had a thing for convertibles -- and antique radios, typewriters, kitchen appliances, televisions, neon signs, and Barbie dolls.

Deer Park Winery and Auto Museum.

Deer Park Winery Auto Museum

Claims to be the "World's Largest Auto Museum of Convertibles and Americana." Very nice grounds to walk through. Has a few buildings with beautiful, classic cars, most with placards of information. The lower building houses a radio and appliance collection and the upper building has the Barbie doll room. Some cars are scattered in the lower area, outside in the elements. The gift shop is nice. Offers wine, but I didn't pay attention to that part.

Deer Park Winery And Car Museum

The car collection is in three buildings on the Deer Park winery property. The museum is a cool place, with a non-commercial feel to it.
