Fodor's Review

L.A. is a mecca for car lovers, which explains the popularity of this museum featuring 300 amazing automobiles. But you don't have to be a gearhead to appreciate this building full of antique and unusual vehicles. You can learn how Los Angeles grew up around its freeways, how cars are go from the page to the production line, and what role automobiles have played in Hollywood. See a Popemobile, a Batmobile, hot rods, and motorcycles from around the world. Take a 90-minute tour of the basement-level Vault and see how the vehicles are preserved and maintained. Young kids aren't allowed in the Vault, but can enjoy the rest of the museum.
