The Only Museum Tour You Need

Take a ‘live’ wander around LA’s phenomenal Petersen Automotive Museum.

By Terry Christodoulou 19/05/2020

LA’s Petersen Automotive Museum has opened its ‘doors’ to digital tours, with a pending virtual car week to further sate couch-confined motoring enthusiasts.

The virtual tours – as led by Petersen’s collection manager, Dana Williamson – offer a chance to explore the incredible museum’s vault and ogle some of the most sought after pieces of machinery ever made.

The one hour tour – sign-up online and await a confirmed slot – means an exploration of history and art alongside obvious mechanics and engineering, covering 5575 square metres and 250 vehicles that includes everything from the Batmobile to some rather bonkers Bugattis.

Bonnets are lifted and doors opened on some models – the live tour also allowing attendees to pose questions of various museum staff.

Given the cancellation of Monterey Car Week, The Peterson is also planning a virtual car week for August 12 – 16. Ingeniously titled ‘Petersen Car Week’, the four-day digital festival will be a proposed mix of live vehicle debuts, online auctions and more.
