The Petersen Automotive Museum anchors the eastern end of the famed "Miracle Mile," that length of Wilshire Boulevard that boasts numerous world-class museums. Located on the corner of Fairfax Avenue since 1994, the museum's collection encompasses over 300 vehicles of all types – inculding one of the Batmobiles! Five galleries house changing exhibitions of the collection (but don't expect to see more than about 150 of the autos at any one time), while other galleries display automotive memorabilia. Don't miss the Discovery Center where kids can learn basic car fundamentals in the interactive hands-on learning center. There's a whole exhibition devoted to Hot Wheels toys, too, which is a bit like heaven for car-loving kids.
