The museum has an incredible group of cars with lots of variety that anyone will enjoy. I’ve been twice and the exhibits had changed so there was lots new to see. Looking forward to my third trip! more »
One of the best spots in LA for families. My kids and I enjoyed our day exploring this magnificent place. It has plenty of movies cars. Almost all the vehicles you have seen in any movie. Your family will enjoy the safe and friendly atmosphere of this place. So easy to explore and walk around. Duration: 90-120 minutes.
Step into an amazing, jaw-dropping world of cars that I didn't think existed. All cars featured in well-loved top-grosser movies get you reminiscing of not only those movies they were in but the happy times I had watching them. The other featured cars owned by famous people are equally awesome. Creativity immortalized in this museum in the heart of Los Angeles!Not to be missed!
