A four-story tribute to the auto, the Petersen Automotive Museum is a treat in any event, for the individuals who can’t tell a cylinder from a carburetor. A headlights-to-slow downlights advanced makeover (by Kohn Pederson Fox) in late 2015 remaining it genuinely glimmering from an external perspective; the outside is undulating groups of treated steel on a dragster red foundation. The once-frump inside is currently similarly holding, with floors themed for the history, industry, and creativity of mechanized transportation.
Start by on the history floor (third floor) overflowing with a normally changing determination of exemplary and idea vehicles. In the Cars of Film and Television exhibition, you may see the DeLorean from Back to the Future, the convertible from Thelma and Louise, and a Batmobile. The second (industry) floor shows how it’s done, remembering for a children’s segment motivated by the film Cars; there’s an exclusively constructed Lightning McQueen. The ground floor centers around the specialty of the vehicle, generally in unique displays.
What’s the fourth floor? The cellar vault of 100 or more uncommon and exceptional vehicles, which can be visited by visit ($20 overcharge, over the age of 10 as it were). On our visit, we saw a Model T Ford, Pope John Paul II’s Popemobile, limos for US presidents and Saddam Hussein, and Fred Astaire’s Rolls-Royce, complete with Louis Vuitton gear.
The exhibition hall’s structure won the esteemed American Architecture Award for critical new structures.
