Visit of Petersen Automotive Museum, Los Angeles
The Petersen Automotive Museum is more than a large room filled with cars parked in rows like an indoor parking lot. The vehicles chosen for exhibition are displayed in context to give them real meaning and a better experience for all who come to visit. The “Streetscape” is full of architectural elements that are period correct for the vehicles that surrounded them, immersing visitors deep into the stories that are told.
