The private tour guides were outstanding and had very interesting stories- they have a heart for these cars and their histories! The food at the restaurant was excellent! Highly recommend investing in a private tour. The fried trumpet mushrooms were a unique and outstanding appetizer! All of the volunteers and paid staff were very professional. It's easy to see why the Petersen has been awarded the best museum in the United States several times!

I love the Peterson and having a dossier for an hour allowed us to focus on certain cars and eras to learn a little more than what the plaques read. Jeff was very knowledgeable and shared some of his own personal stories as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our private highlights tour.
