    Great museum dedicated to the automobile and its history. The entrance could be a bit tricky. While the official address is Wilshire, the entrance is to be accessed by either Fairfax or the other little side street that flanks the museum.The Petersen has a diverse collection of automobiles, but recently the museum has come to be known more as an event location than an automotive museum.But, I suppose this is how this museum chooses to make revenue and sustain its existence.

    We took the BF’s car-obsessed dad here for his birthday and he loved it. He walked away with a phone full of pictures and a bag full of shirts from the gift store. I personally don’t really care for cars, but even I enjoyed myself. On the first floor you walk through the history of the car. They set up the background to look like the era the car is from with store fronts and mannequins. The second floor has all the cool movie and tricked-up cars. We saw everything from the Batmobile to the Mach 5. There was a Hot Wheels exhibit when we went and my BF got excited looking for all the cars he used to have. You’re not allowed to touch the cars so this can be tough on the younger ones, but up on the third floor there are a couple of nice playrooms for them. They have little cars to climb on, ramps to race toy cars down, and plenty of hands-on activities. This a great place to spend the day at and fun for kids of all ages!

    Not sure what took me so long to give this place a visit. The museum was a bit smaller than I expected. Worth a trip at least once, but I don’t think it would be worth it to revisit. I would say the museum is a must see for every Angeleno who is a car enthusiast.After seeing The Nethercutt Collection in Sylmar, the vintage car collection here was not as impressive. My favorite of the collection was the “best sports coupes in the world” and some cars featured in some films such as the Batmobile and Herbie.If you check in on Foursquare you can get a free Jaguar baseball cap or keychain from the gift shop. I’ll always remember this place as the last place Notorious B.I.G. was before he was shot to death on Museum Row in 1997.

    A smaller museum, but a cool place to check out some retro cars. Came here for another event once, but the museum itself is a great space. Pretty close to LACMA, too.
