At the National Automobile Museum, we invite you to not just revel in our more than 200 glorious cars, but to relive their stories. Walk through our cobblestone street scenes, honk the antique “ooga” horn, put on a period hat and coat and create your own stories in our photo car.
If there is one thing that we all have in common, especially in Southern California, it’s the automobile. To some the automobile is an appliance, but to us it is a passion. The Petersen Automotive Museum has been celebrating this passion since 1994 on the corner of Fairfax Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard, the third most travelled intersection in the city of Los Angeles.
Dedicated enthusiasts whose passion for cars knows no bounds. Thanks to them, important milestones of automotive ingenuity, engineering, and beauty survive to be viewed and enjoyed today. See how they will go to any length to find, restore, and share the cars of their dreams—only at America’s Car Museum.
The Forney Museum of Transportation is a one-of-a-kind collection of over 600 artifacts relating to historical transportation. It began 60 years ago with a single 1921 Kissel, but soon expanded to include vehicles of all kinds. Today it includes not just vehicles, but also buggies, motorcycles, steam locomotives, aircraft, carriages, rail equipment, fire apparatus, public transportation, sleighs, bicycles, toys & diecast models, vintage apparel and much, much more!
The GM North American Heritage Collection is made up of approximately 600 cars and trucks. Many reflect GM's industry firsts, like the first electric self-starter, used on the 1912 Cadillac. Others are technological experiments like the first American gas turbine-powered car, Firebird 1, or the world's first hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle.
The GM Heritage Center is not open to the public and appointments are necessary to schedule group tours of 30 or more, or for corporate meetings, seminars and special events.
