CARS MECHANICAL INSTITUTE AND CARSPAD EXPERIENCE
IN THE ROB AND MELANI WALTON DISCOVERY CENTER
*Exhibition included with the purchase of a general admission ticket or with your membership*
Through a ground-breaking partnership with Disney/Pixar, visitors of all ages can be a part of an amazing experience found only at the Petersen. The Cars Mechanical Institute, inspired by the beloved animated film franchise, immerses visitors in different interactive stations where they learn about the mechanical systems that make cars work. Visitors can also paint and personalize virtual cars as well as race and color their own Cars character to take home, and our littlest car enthusiasts can zoom toy cars around a racetrack.
In the Cars Mechanical Institute visitors can participate in the CARSpad Experience, an iPad game where visitors design their own virtual racecar.
