About The Petersen:
If there is one thing that we all have in common, especially in Southern California, it’s the automobile. To some the automobile is an appliance, but to us it is a passion. The Petersen Automotive Museum has been celebrating this passion since 1994 on the corner of Fairfax Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard, the third most travelled intersection in the city of Los Angeles. It anchors one end of the famed "Miracle Mile" and considered the west entrance to Museum Row.   With recent changes and additions in executive board and leadership, the Petersen is in its most exciting time ever, gearing up for massive exterior and interior changes, ultimately resulting in a world-class museum slated for 2015.
