Passion for Cars: Petersen Automotive Museum, Los Angeles

Cars are important parts of our lives and in some places like America, having a car is a must! (because of very long ranges to arrive to a destination) That`s why we always have special interest in cars and care about those unique ones that have a role in history or our memories. On second day of January in 2016, I was about to visit LACMA and just happened to see that the Petersen Automotive Museum is very near across the street! Click ‘read more’ to see photos of what I have seen in this great museum for those with with interest in cars!

Petersen Automotive Museum on Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles City, is almost impossible not to see with those red walls and silver curly lines around the building. They have more than 300 cars in their inventory and for different occasions and in different time intervals, they show 150 of them to visitors in 3 floors of showing space. They recently opened ‘The Vault’ that have some special models, but if you want to see there, you should get there in a certain time. It is good to check with their website before planning to visit ‘The Vault’.
