The Petersen Automotive Museum is an interesting museum for both Car Lovers and Non Car Lovers . It is one of the world’s largest automotive museums. The museum has over one-hundred vehicles on display, and the remaining half of the collection is kept in a “vault,” located on the basement level of the building.

We were wow’ed as soon as we entered the Museum. They have so many cars from different eras which was totally unexpected.

The ground floor focuses on automotive artistry, showcasing an array of extravagant automobiles. The second floor is a collection of interactive teaching exhibits.The third floor is all about the history of the automobiles giving a special importance to the car culture of Southern California.

  1. Woah.. The museum’s collection is just amazing. I once visited a museum in which all cars were in shape of vegetables.. You have clicked some great photographs. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yep, it’s a great museum for car lovers. I especially loved the vintage cars, but the hubby was much more impressed by the supercars – things like the Bugati Veyron. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This looks like an awesome place for car (and/or movie) enthusiasts. My son would love to sit in the Batmobile, and I bet he wouldn’t let me leave without purchasing something special in the gift shop.

  4. Very cool place. My brother would love it there. He’s all about the cars and this looks like a car temple :))

  5. I love to visit an car museum so the Petersen Automotive Museum is perfect for me. I’d love to see the 1989 batmobile, so much more fun than the new ones! A 2006 Ferrari, that’s from Michael Schumachers time isn’t it?

  6. I have been to some vintage car museums but never to one with such dazzling new cars! I would love to photograph them. The colors and designs are mind blowing!

  7. Woah they have such a cool collection of cars. My brother would love to visit it! Do they have limited edition car miniatures and toys?

  8. I do not own a car but I would really love to visit this museum. The vehicles that you have featured are like art pieces. They are unique and very interesting to look at. I like the yellow car with drawings the most. The creativity of the artist who made that is admirable.

  10. Was that the actual Batmobile? I love this place and that red classic Ferrari is just too gorgeous. I would love to visit this place and with the summer holidays so close, this would make a great day out!
