Former Academy of Art University President Richard A. Stephens has always had a penchant for cars—a passion passed down to his daughter and current President Dr. Elisa Stephens. Wanting to offer industrial design students unparalleled reference material, the auto museum hosts a wealth of beautifully crafted historical automobiles right in our industrial design building.

The museum is open to the public, and we invite you to come by and experience automotive history for yourself.

All proceeds from admission will benefit the Rotary Club and the Boys & Girls Club.
