The Valley Relics Museum opened up around the corner from California Car Cover this past Saturday. The grand opening party featured a car show, live music and the first chance to check out its collection of San Fernando Valley heritage. The party kicked off at 1230pm, so once I wrapped up our car show I cruised over there.

The Valley Relics Museum contains a lot of history on the San Fernando Valley. Everything that has made the valley what it is, is on display at the museum. Plenty of vintage maps and photos of the changing SFV landscape, plus signs from popular stores and restaurants of the past.
The vehicles of valley western wear legend, Nudie, are on display front and center. You can't miss the pistol and rifle adorned vehicles.

The collection of restaurant signs was probably my favorite part of the place. I remembered many of the restaurants and bars since I have grown up in the valley as well.
