A Miracle on the Miracle Mile
For Our Private Tour Guests Who Love Cars
Welcome to the new look of the Petersen Automotive Museum. Once a giant department store (Ohrbach’s) located at the corner of Fairfax and Wilshire on the Miracle Mile (so named for its grand shopping all the way to La Brea) the Petersen publishing empire celebrates all things automotive in this landmark location. Since 1994 the Petersen collection of cars, trucks and motorcycles has thrilled car lovers with ever changing exhibits in 25 galleries. There are more than 100 vehicles on display with the remainder of the collection safely stored in a giant vault beneath the building. Talk to the right people and pay the fee and the vault is accessible to an eager auto enthusiast. Hollywood and the movies contribute to the exhibition at most times so you can see and enjoy the designs of cars instrumental in the action of some of your favorite movies and television shows. With its proximity to both Hollywood and Beverly Hills we always manage to pass by the Petersen on our private tour of Los Angeles and perhaps convince our guests to make a stop to inspect some show cars on display.
