This is such a fun day out! We opted to only go for the regular ticket, not the volt as well due to time, but next time we go, we plan to do that too! If you’re a film fan, this is a real treat. I loved the original Batmobile and one of the Delorean's from Back To The Future. There was even a class going on that you could walk into, on car design, which was very neat. They had a Lightning McQueen and Sally Carrera from Cars, and a storyboard of the town they were inspired by and the real people that influenced the characters. Also loved that in the parking lot, there were several prop cars too, like the vehicle from Jurassic Park. A super fun day!

Best museum in Los Angeles and not to be missed. There are over 300 cars from Model T's to today's supercars and, a separate exhibit of all the Porsche's that have been developed from the very first ones to today's racecars. Thewre are also cars that have appeared in movies. Also, 250 more automobiles are in the vault, which is not to be missed. Those cars are icons and rare. The vault also has motorcycles and trucks that span 120 years of history.

The Petersen Auto Museum is hard to describe. It is a auto lovers heaven. It is the most sophisticated, well organized, friendly, professionally run auto museum in the world. I've probably visited 25+ auto museums in US, Canada, Britain, Europe and the Petersen is a stand out. Their educational department is incomparable. The dozens and dozens of special events held each year are amazing. You get access to collections and significant collectors. They say there are around ten major collections in LA Area. What most people don't know is there is really over 100 collections that you would know about if it weren't for the Petersen.

I have had the pleasure of being a Checkered Flag member since the founding of this Great Automotive Institution, and have marveled many time about the world class displays, presentations and events......the building is magnificent also......but the truly spectacular asset that separates THE PETERSEN from all others , is the PEOPLE, that have both created their vision and now operate this treasure every day ! There is none better ! Respectfully, Dick Waitneight

I love going to the museum and being a CF 200 member. I get to visit all the cars of my past and circulate with my heros, a lot of them who drove and created them.
