Wow, is all I can when entering this car museum! The finest cars are shown here and they offer a rotating dispaly throughout the year.

I went to the Petersen Automotive Museum with my boyfriend who happens to love cars especially those old classics. This place is amazing with three floors of exhibits showing off the most beautiful cars. I liked the Hollywood Gallery and the Bruce Meyer Hot Rod Gallery. They had really awesome cars that I wished I could sit in and try out myself. more

Really fun and neat place to check out 8/11/2005

One Sunday we were bored so we decided to check this place out and it was actually really neat. Every few months they get a new display which ranges from muscle cars to cars of political figures. They also have a cute little diner type restaurant inside and a gift shop with some really neat things. It's great for the whole family and very inexpensive I highly recommend it. more

Good stuff 8/3/2005

This auto museum is appealing because it is in a cool part of town, and it has an awesome selection of dated and contemporary cars to check out. Can’t recall how much admission prices are, but I don’t remember them being too bad. Plus, you can see where Biggie was fatally shot right outside – truly a historic district. more
