After nearly a year of research and development, we have created an entirely new website for your enjoyment and education. Not only can you find out about the latest exhibits and events at the Petersen Automotive Museum, but you can also peruse our collection, do research, find educational content from past exhibits, find historical images and items not on display, and much more! Visit our Collection and Archives database, and you will find many types of automotive artifacts from automobiles to early 1900’s signaling gloves. Search the database for specific vehicles or years of vehicles. Each vehicle has multiple photos and a description, and some have related articles, historical documentation and photography, links to associated museum exhibits, and video.


Currently, only a sample of the collection is in the database. With over 350 vehicles in the collection and countless other types of artifacts, the database will constantly be updated with new and interesting material. Check back often to see what’s new!
