The Petersen Automotive Museum Reopens to the Public Tomorrow!

December 6, 2015 by Christina Champlin

Did you hear the newly renovated Petersen Automotive Museum finally opens to the public tomorrow!

Following the special preview party taking place this weekend the museum will open to the general public on December 7 with their regular hours of 10:00am – 6:00pm.


This $90 million dollar redesign took 15 months to complete and with it came some sleek design feature and exhibits.

While touring the bright, spacious interior guests will have a chance to view exhibits on auto history, Southern California automobile culture, vintage vehicles, Hollywood cars (hello Batmobile!) and more.

In addition to traditional exhibits the Petersen will feature an augmented reality experience for folks to test out (sweet!).

Expect more to come from the renovations, including a restaurant from the Drago brothers in the spring and a tour of the museum’s vault beginning in January.

Adults: $15
Seniors (age 65+): $12 (must show ID)
