Hoods Up on Father's Day

  • Petersen Automotive Museum 6060 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90036 United States (map)

EXTENDED MUSEUM HOURS: Open until 8PM

Get an inside look at some of our most extraordinary engines!

Once a year on Father's Day we pop the hoods on a selection of our favorite vehicles. Last year we showcased cars like our ‘56 Jaguar XKSS. This year we’ll be opening up a whole new set of vehicles, including our ‘54 Plymouth Explorer by Ghia and the ‘64 Porsche 901.

Our Rob and Melani Walton Discovery Center will be hosting a special Father’s Day Arts and Crafts project where little racers can make a “Dad Club of America” card for their fathers using images of some of our featured museum vehicles as an homage to fathers and the car clubs of America.

Members get early access to the museum starting at 9am on Father’s Day, as well as expedited check in on the day of the event. Not a member? Click here to become a member today or call 323-964-6366.
