The Petersen Automotive Museum LA
-- A Must See (Inside and Out)
The Petersen Automotive Museum LA recently reopened after a 14-month, $90 million redesign. The improvements include an amazing exterior and 95,000 square feet of exhibition space. There's no question you will find the new collection of cars and motorcycles to be nothing short of breathtaking. The museum is open every day from 10am-6pm and is located at 6060 Wilshire Blvd., in downtown Los Angeles.
The museum's collection contains more than 300 vehicles. However the museum only displays about 150 at any one time which means the exhibits are constantly rotating. A large part of the museum’s focus is to collect and preserve historic vehicles. A great deal of importance is placed on acquiring significant vehicles of all shapes, sizes, makes, models, and purposes. Their original donation was a restored 1952 Mercedes Benz 300 Cabriolet.
The building exterior is just as amazing as the cars inside; be sure to watch the Petersen Auto Museum Remodel Video.
