Petersen Automotive Museum
#7 of 150 Museums in Los Angeles
It's collection is world class, and unlike other world class auto museums, it's collection spans many different areas types of cars and also many different manufactures.
... board of directors of the Petersen museum decided to take a risk: to change the comfy, familiar, and much beloved diorama based exhibits, and move the museum into the forefront of worldwide automotive museums.

Madame Tussauds Hollywood
#18 of 150 Museums in Los Angeles
We have visited many wax museums and Madame Tussauds is the best -- but the Hollywood location is the absolute best (we've been to Madame Tussauds in Washington DC and Vegas).
What I found most interesting is the encouragement of pictures, as this is opposite how museums usually are.
