Lisette wanted to give her dad tickets to the Petersen Automotive Museum for Christmas this year. I’ve been hearing raves about this place for years, but had never been there myself. Over the years, my husband has taken my dad and his dad, at different times, when they were visiting us from out of town. My daughter has been there on a school field trip, but our family has never been there together and I have never been anywhere near going inside alone!
Today, I had the privilege of joining my little family on a trip through the museum and gift shop with lunch at Johnny Rockets (I had the Route 66, of course) and finally a trek across the street to LACMA where we strolled through the sculpture garden and past the La Brea Tar Pits! If this sounds like family fun for you, too, buy your Petersen’s tickets online and save a few dollars.
Since it was Sunday, the traffic was very light and there was an abundance of free parking on the street. With two floors of exhibit space, the third floor has lots of hands-on features and photo ops to interest the whole family from toddlers to grandparents!
