Looking for something cool to do while you’re sheltering in place? Or just something car-related to take your mind off of the daily grind of the news cycle? Then it’s the Mullin Automotive Museum to the rescue!

On Friday, March 20, starting at 10:00 a.m. PT (that’s 1:00 p.m. ET), the Mullin Automotive Museum will livestream its collection on Instagram, allowing viewers to take a virtual tour from the comfort of their own couches. If you’ve never heard of the Mullin, it’s located in Oxnard, California, and has been voted one of the top 10 automotive museums in the world. It boasts more than 140 vehicles, pieces of art and artifacts that focus on masterpieces from manufacturers including Bugatti, Delage, Delahaye, Hispano-Suiza, Talbot-Lago, and Voisin.

You’ll be able to hear the incredible stories behind the museum’s legendary, prize-winning automobiles courtesy of a docent-led tour on Instagram Live. You’ll get to go behind the scenes, with rare access to founder Peter Mulllin’s amazing collection, which features the largest assemblage of Bugattis in the world. Follow the Mullin on its Instagram feed here and be sure to check in on Friday. The Mullin already did one Instagram livestream on Wednesday, also at 10 a.m. PT.

The Mullin Automotive Museum is joining the other legendary California-based automotive collection, the Petersen Museum, which is offering free educational livestreams twice daily on a wide range of automotive-themed topics.

It’s looking as if it will be a while before we get to head back out for cars and coffee events or other get togethers in the real world. To help you get through it all, take a look at our list of seven lesser-know automotive movies. And keep checking back as we continue to update the site with more car-themed distractions.
