Miracle Mile, Petersen Automotive Museum

Vroom! Kiddos love cars and trucks and things that go.  The Petersen Automotive is a fascinating but small museum that will rev up your senses and make your kids want to start their engines. Dedicated to all things car, especially the LA car culture, this museum features more than 150 rare and classic cars, trucks and motorcycles. Located on the third floor is The May Family Discovery Center. This interactive “hands-on” learning center is where you will spend most of your time.  Well, here and on the second floor, where you’ll find the Hot Wheels Exhibition and the Batmobile!

Hours: Open Tuesday – Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Admission: Kids are $5, adults are $15 and kiddos under 5 are free.

Need to Know: If you need to refuel, you can pop down to the ground floor to the always delicious Johnny Rockets to enjoy some shakes, burgers and fries.
