Explore Workshop: Behind the Scenes at Museum

The Petersen Automotive Museum has just set out a new Vault Workshop exploration, allowing motorsport fanatics to have an exclusive peep into the worksite. This journey grants one-of-a-kind access to the interior of the environment and offers insight into how things are created and maintained.

Once every seven days, a select party of merely 25 fans has the rare opportunity to take a gander inside the Vault and the workshop. In this space, the Petersen Museum’s enormous assortment is kept in optimal condition. Not only are onlookers able to observe vintage cars, such as the Porsche 911, Ferrari F40, and Corvette Stingray (C2) being serviced, but also get an eyeful of newly presented autos. Over the span of two hours, the tour is helmed by one of the Petersen Car Museum’s docents, who can give insightful details about all on exhibit.

There are ten conservators stationed at the Petersen Automotive Museum’s secure area tasked with fixing and preserving an incredible amount of vehicles.

Thanks to this committed group, the vehicles are in pristine condition and available to be viewed promptly. If you’re interested, the facility tours will take place on Saturdays at 9:30 am. Notwithstanding, extra visits will occur on a Saturday and Sunday during holiday breaks.

There exist a few regulations to abide by. To prevent any expensive harm to display pieces, strollers are prohibited. It is permissible to take pictures; however, no tripods or other types of camera equipment can be brought in the Vault. Children under the age of four cannot participate in the guided tour.

It seems like a great opportunity, but it is somewhat pricey. Admittance to the workshop excursion is priced at $150 each, rendering it a rather costly family outing. Nevertheless, it would appear to be an unforgettable adventure and something motor enthusiasts would enjoy if you are still interested in Christmas gifts ideas.

It is imperative to remember that in order to gain access to the Vault, visitors must still purchase a general admission pass. The Petersen Automotive Museum tickets begin at $19.95 for adults between the ages of 18 and 62, and go up in cost to $17.95 for seniors aged 62 and above, then drop down to $12.95 for youths 12 to 17 years old, and finally start at $11.95 for children from 4 to 11.

Just recently, the Petersen Automotive Museum has welcomed a new addition to its roster of incredible exhibitions. In June, the museum was proud to present “Splendor and Speed: Treasures of the Petersen Collection”, a showcase of some of the most remarkable and historically significant cars of the 20th century, including Steve McQueen’s 1956 Jaguar XKSS. Moreover, back in February, the museum also hosted a motoring-themed art exhibition.

One year ago, the gallery collaborated with Yellowbrick in order to inaugurate a gratis motor design program, giving participants an opportunity to get coached by more illustrious figures from the car industry such as Tesla’s Franz von Holzhausen, Ralph Gilles, et cetera.
