Stuck inside, with family members or co-habitants driving you nuts? (Virtually) whisk yourselves away to L.A., where the Petersen Automotive Museum is livestreaming one-hour tours of their Vault, which contains some of the most beautiful and rare auto designs on Earth.
Paradoxically, you can see more on the virtual tour--like inside the cars and under the hoods--than you could if you were physically there, since they don't have to worry about you getting your greasy fingerprints on everything.
Although we wish you were with us at the museum, we can now extend the stories of our collection to a global audience and give our patrons, you, more access to the cars than ever before! On the tour, you will get to see under the hoods and even inside some of the vehicles!
The 60 minute tour will cover the gems of the Vault and we will have staff working to field all comments during the tour. If we don't get to your comment or cover a particular vehicle, we will respond to all questions after the tour ends. The tours are live, so please make sure to comment if you have questions and we'll try our best to get to them.
All tours beginning (3/25) will be suggested donation. All donations allow us to continue to maintain the collection and support our staff and digital programs during this unfortunate time. We greatly appreciate your support and thank you for being with us during this time.

If their livestreaming schedule doesn't jive with yours, here's a 30-minute pre-recorded tour of the vault's "Presidential/Post-War Themed" vehicles:
