(323) 964-6348

Welcome to an extraordinary venue where automobiles tell stories and every story has a place in history. As one of the world's largest and most diverse automotive museums, the Petersen chronicles the evolution of great automotive engineering achievements and its impact on our culture over the past 120 years. Car enthusiasts and novices alike will enjoy attending an event in an environment that is entertaining, educational, and intriguing. The museum offers four dynamic spaces in which to host the event of your dreams. Choose between the exquisitely detailed ARTISTRY exhibit on the 1st floor, the inspiring INDUSTRY exhibits on the 2nd floor, the nostalgic HISTORY exhibits on the 3rd floor, and the iconic rooftop pavilion and terrace of the 4th floor Penthouse.



The Petersen Automotive Museum has always been a prime setting for captivating celebrations. Rated by CNN, Octane, and Top Gear as “the world’s greatest automotive museum” after its 2015 total transformation, the Petersen now boasts sweeping architectural ribbons, four floors of venue space,  and over 100 vehicles on display. It has become a positively breathtaking place for weddings, as well as corporate parties, conferences, and product launches.


For weddings and receptions, the rooftop pavilion and terrace of the William E. Connor Penthouse is the most popular choice. Occupying the entire 4th floor, it’s an architecturally intriguing space: an all-glass “room” surrounded by a smooth, slate patio. You can have your ceremony on one side of the patio and host a seated reception on the other, using the glass-enclosed Penthouse itself for cocktails and dancing. 



The first floor is dedicated to the ARTISTRY of cars, as inspiration and as a canvas for artistic expression. 


The second floor focuses on the INDUSTRY of the automobile, examining design, production and technology.


The third floor revisits the HISTORY of the automobile and our love for the characters that cars play in Hollywood.
