Many people all over the country right now are staying home in an effort to keep themselves and others safe from COVID-19. One of the many unfortunate side effects is that tons of places that we like to visit are currently closed for the public.
The Petersen Automotive Museum in downtown Los Angeles is just one of those places. I’ve been there many times before to either attend events, or just bring family and friends. So, to go this long without visiting has been a bit of a bummer.
To make things feel a little better, The Petersen has launched a virtual tour in the form of a two-hour video which explores the entire museum and even the vault which houses some of the most rare cars in their collection.
The video is live right now so anyone can tune in and relax for two hours while going through five different exhibits and the vaults for viewing enjoyment.
If you want to start watching now, just scroll below! For more information about the virtual tour and information about donating to The Petersen Museum check out the press release below the video.
I should also say that while I think it is pretty awesome that The Petersen Museum created this virtual tour, I still very much recommend checking out the museum in person once it’s safe to do so.
Hopefully that will be soon!
