All About The Cloud Museum in Bard, California

This is a feature video of a spectacular place I found in the small hamlet of Bard, California just north of Yuma Arizona, called the Cloud Museum. It’s a private collection of thousands of antique and vintage items. Cars, trucks, gas pumps, machinery, farm implements, wheels, bottles, motors and engines, fire trucks, old motor homes, lanterns, and so much more.

The owner Johnny Cloud grew up in the area and started the collection over 27 years ago. He told me he has over 160 vehicles. Many are in various states of rust but some have been restored to their original glory. Also a fan of the wooden spoked wheels Mr. Cloud has more than 400 hung throughout the yard.

It’s an amazing place for guys like me who enjoy rustography. I spent close to a whole day there shooting photos and video and this was just a fraction of what I saw. I hope you enjoy this small look back in time.
