Highway 101 Museum

By John Daley

On Friday, July 18th a new museum opened at 631 South Coast Highway 101 at the 101 Cafe building in Oceanside. The Highway 101 Museum opened to document the history of this great coastal resource. This, the only 101 museum on the West Coast hopes to provide a visual history of California's "Mother Road" and stimulate the preservation of its precious resources. From Mexico to Canada the route has provided the proving grounds for the car culture which California is well known for developing. This museum will have something for everyone. The initial exhibit, Images on the 101, explores not only Oceanside and all of San Diego County, but images statewide. The museum hopes to provide new exhibits provided by communities along the entire route on the West Coast. There is no charge for the public to see the images and unlike many museums we are open from 6:30am till midnight everyday, but Christmas.
