The Petersen Museum in Los Angeles has over 100,000 square feet of exhibit space dedicated to the automotive arts with over 300 vehicles divided among 25 galleries. Among the galleries and displays there is something for everyone in this tastefully designed interior space. My visit was timely as the Dan Gurney Eagle racing cars were on display, however I was pleasantly surprised by the Peter and Merle Mullin Bugatti and Precious Metal galleries where over a dozen of the most beautiful and significant autos in silver were on display. The Mullin gallery not only has many significant examples of Bugatti’s automotive artistic creations but also paintings, sculpture and furniture created by family members. Anyone truly interested in French Art-Deco would be well served by visiting the Mullin Museum in Oxnard, a truly world class museum of any genre. So, if you find yourself in Los Angeles with an afternoon to spare or a long layover at LAX, visit the Petersen, there is an automotive surprise around every corner.
