Museum hours: Closed For Renovations

Private Events

Thank you for visiting the Petersen Private Events page.  The museum is currently closed and undergoing a monumental renovation. Scheduled to reopen December 1, 2015, the Petersen is being transformed from the inside out and will be THE event venue destination for private and corporate gatherings.

What will remain unchanged is the Petersen’s dedication to all things automobile. Your guest will be entertained as well as educated.  Our extensive car collection is among the largest and most exclusive in the world.  Whether you’re hosting a cocktail reception, launch party or a formal seated gala, your guests will enjoy the unique ambience and immersive experience created by our various galleries, automotive exhibits and art installations.

Over 50,000 square feet of unique event space and ample adjacent parking will make hosting an event at the Petersen particularly pleasurable.

With its planned contemporary interiors and breathtaking exterior, the Petersen provides an unparalleled backdrop to your next project.


All Petersen preferred venders will be thoroughly vetted and well versed with the new museum to ensure an extraordinary experience.
