The Petersen Automotive Museum

If you happen to be in Los Angeles, you should take the time to visit The Petersen Automotive Museum, one of the best collections of classic cars, motorcycles, and other transportation you will ever see. Unlike many museums that simply have row after row of cars, The Petersen offers a unique look back in time, recreating dealerships, speed shops, and gas stations that serve as the backdrop to many of the cars on the first floor. Upstairs you'll find Hot Rods, Amazing Italian Cars (current showcase), and a great collection of Hollywood Movie cars. Besides cars, the museum is home Gas Pumps, Road Signs, Movie Posters, and much more.
