The Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, California now features a very special exhibition:
“Citroën: The Man, The Marque, The Mystique” provides a retrospective on the first 98 years of Citroën spirit and innovation.
The museum features an stunning amount of 46 cars — starting from the very first Citroën automobile ever built, the 1919 “Type A”, along all significant and iconic Citroën vehicles such as the 2CV, the Traction Avant (“Gangster Limousine”), of course a number of DS (“Goddess”) and ID models, and up to a modern 2007 C6 limousine and a 2009 C3 Pluriel convertible.
It took 2 years of careful preparation and curated selection of vehicles to make one of the big wishes of enthusiasts become a reality: “a Citroën museum”!
Congratulations to the businessman and philanthropist Peter W. Mullin and the team behind who realized “the most comprehensive look at the history of the famed French automaker ever attempted in North America.”
The Citroën exhibit opens to the public on Saturday 11-March-2017 until spring 2018.

Wow. Congrats to Pete Mullin, well done. True entrepreneurship. A bit of a shame and embarrassing that America is first and such an exhibition can not be made possible in Europe!
I have been driving Citroens, always the DS ,since 1959.in Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, England, Denmark, Canada and America. Last year we visited a small museum close to Bad Herrenalb, in Germany, where, amazingly enough, there was one of the three existing ‘Kegresse’ vehicles. It was situated in a rather dark area, but I managed to take a picture of it.
