THE PETERSEN is the place to spoil Dad this Father’s Day

The Petersen Museum in Los Angeles is hosting a variety of family-friendly events and specials to celebrate Father’s Day!

Rare Iconic Cars “Hoods Up” exhibit

Visitors will get the rare chance to see the engines of some of the museum’s most iconic cars, including a 1948 Davis Divan, 2015 McLaren P1 and 1952 Ferrari Barchetta Superleggera. One of its most popular annual events, the museum has opened the hoods of its cars for several years. The engines of these priceless automobiles are rarely seen in public, so the chance to see what makes them tick is a rare opportunity.
