I recently had a friend and former college roommate visit Southern California for business and one of the "must see" places on his list was the Petersen Automotive Museum.

We arrived on a week day morning when there weren't many other visitors at the museum.

Parking in their covered lot was free for the first 30 minutes and $2 each additional half hour.

Admission in to the museum is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors or students, $5 for kids and free for military service members.

The museum is located at 6060 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90036. It is open from Tuesday to Sunday 10 AM to 6 PM every day of the year.

To reach the staff by phone, call (323) 964-6356.

I captured these images with my Samsung Galaxy S3 Android smartphone. It was relatively dim in the museum, so a few of the images aren't as sharp as I would have liked.

We spent about an hour walking around the three floors of the museum admiring classic cars, antique motorcycles and vehicles used in Hollywood movie making.

If you plan on doing the special "Vault Tour" of the basement, you'll have to pay $25 and schedule your tour in advance.
