The Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum, a non-profit corporation, collects, preserves and displays examples of mechanical ingenuity and crafts associated with the early days of the American farm and rural community. The Museum offers educational and recreational opportunities to the public through exhibits, demonstrations, activities and programs displaying the art of invention fulfilling necessity.
Since 1976, our Museum has grown to become one of the premier educational and recreational facilities in North San Diego County. Our Museum's collection focuses on 1849 through the early 1960’s era with exhibits that actively demonstrate early American life and technology. Unique from traditional Museums, our collection is maintained in operating condition and used during a wide range of events.
Since its incorporation the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum has become a parent organization to several other groups including:
