While I was in Los Angeles, I absolutely had to go back to the Petersen Automotive Museum. Last year, the Petersen went under the knife, had some plastic surgery and underwent an extensive $125 million renovation. Basically everything was changed except the parking garage. I couldn’t wait to see the new changes…. and also the cars. Since the last time I was there in 2014, the interior is completely different- more modern, more interactive, and the vehicles are displayed as they’re pieces of art (and they are).
The first floor focused on automotive artistry with BMW and the Art of the Automobile and Rolling Sculpture Exhibits.
The second floor had more going on with such exhibits as Cars Mechanical Institute, Race Cars for the Road, and Precious Metals.
Keep climbing those stairs to the third floor to take part of such exhibits as Why we Love the Automobile and literally my favorite exhibit- Automobiles in the Movies.Bernie’s Trip to the Petersen Automotive Museum gallery.
