I went with my son and a friend to visit the Petersen Auto Museum. It was a first for all of us. No matter what your level of interest is in "things automotive," this collection is a real treat. A blend of the old and the new, classic and everyday rides, and staple and concept cars, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The section on the history of Elon Musk and the Tesla brand is a fascinating journey through the mind of an automotive and engineering genius. We did not visit the famous Vault collection of cars which is an extra attraction, so we we have a good reason to return for another look. The McLaren collection is another bonus for race car enthusiasts. On another note, the museum is near the Fairfax Farmer's Market which is an LA historical landmark where one can buy a variety of specialty cuisine and novelty items. I wish parking were cheaper at the Petersen. It actually doubles the price of admission. In spite of this, I highly recommend a visit to the Petersen Museum.

Quite exhilarating for general admission IF you like CARS... . However I would surmise ( after a quick count ) that the MAJORITY of 250 vehicles on display ; as claimed by the museum ; are kept in the VAULT... That's the lower level via elevator ONLY ... If for security reasons are kept there I understand , but charging an extra fee is borderline DESCRIMINATION to the patrons of this fina establishment... Bathrooms are well kept... Guft stire us well stocked...

Everyone was helpful and a great place to go with your partner especially if they enjoy cars. The place was mostly showing the history of cars so if you’re expecting something with more modern cars then don’t be surprised if you don’t see em. There were a lot of super cars tho so that was very cool to see! Overall I give it a 8/10!
