Petersen Automotive Museum

Whilst recently stopping in downtown LA in a Vintage AirStream caravan, I visited, probably one of the most beautiful automotive museums you can imagine. Founded on June 11, 1994, by magazine publisher Robert E. Petersen, and his wife Margie, the Petersen Automotive Museum is owned and operated by the Petersen Automotive Museum Foundation. This really is a must-see attraction on any visit to Los Angeles. It just blows you away, not surprising when you find out they recently splashed $125 million dollars on refurbishment. It costs $15 to enter, but it’s worth paying the extra $20 for the vault tour where you get to see a “behind the scenes” of some of the most unique cars in the collection that are not on display (unfortunately but understandable you are not allowed to photograph these cars as many are privately owned). For me though the cars that really stood out was the Bugatti collection in the main museum.
