About usOn June 11, 1994, Margie and Robert E. Petersen fulfilled a long-time dream when they became founding benefactors to start the Petersen Automotive Museum, donating $5 million to the Los Angeles County National History Museum. Today, the Petersen Automotive Museum stands as the nation’s premiere automotive museum, serving hundred's of thousands of visitors each year. Encompassing more than 100,000 square feet, its exhibits feature more than 150 rare and classic cars, trucks and motorcycles.
