Art & History
That Really Rev
Menifee may be a young, still-growing city, but we still take our history–and cultural arts–seriously here. We invite you to explore some of the many enriching, invigorating, mind-expanding artistic and cultural offerings and institutions available in our community.
The following is a closer look at some area arts and history highlights and landmarks.
Motte Historical Car Museum
Officially known as Motte Historical Car Museum, fans of this unique place often refer to it simply as “The Barn.” The barn got its start back in 1910, thanks to one of the first families of Perris Valley. The Motte family were traditional farmers at heart—but true pioneers in spirit. Inside their historic home, you’ll find enough rich automotive history to eat up at least the entire day. It all unfolds just off historic Highway 74 in charming Sun City.
