The Petersen Automotive Museum
Recognized as the “world’s greatest car museum” by Top Gear magazine, the Petersen was dramatically transformed this year by a $90M renovation that included the addition of the Forza Motorsport Racing Experience, allowing visitors to race cars from the museum’s collection on the world’s most legendary tracks.
This is the third major Forza event this year hosted by the Petersen, following the North American debut of the Forza Horizon 3 cover car and the Michelin 24 Hours Forza Challenge.
The Petersen is a charitable organization supported exclusively by member donations and memberships. Several levels of memberships are available, including the Forza Motorsport Pass which includes exclusive benefits and privileges including after-hours Forza competitive gaming events.
