A really great experience if you love automotive history or just cars in general. They have their own parking in site so you shouldn't have any problems finding a spot close to the museum. There is a lot to see here so you definitely don't want to miss this. Your ticket is good the day so if you want to get a bite to eat half way through you should be able to do that. There are plenty of great places to eat and even a restaurant inside the museum itself.
The Petersen Museum is the place to go if you are a car fanatic or not. Is a great museum to check out. You get to see all kinds of classics and hot rods. Their Saturday events are great! Great opportunity to not only see car but meet new friends. Family friendly museum. A must see if you are visiting Southern California.
