We love the dioramas at the Natural History Museum. The halls are big and dark and quiet, and my little one likes to run from railing to railing in front of the lit-up windows. I like the physical space and seeing the animals up close. It’s so calm and so different from the zoo.

At the Petersen Automotive Museum.
The third floor of the Petersen Automotive Museum is for kids. This mural is just the right size to pretend to drive a Hot Wheels car along, and it is conveniently located near the Hot Wheels check out desk. (Which also happens to be the Pine Wood Derby car check out desk and the marble track check out desk, too.) You can race cars down big tracks and play with trucks on a big rug. You can also sit on a some real vehicles.
Including a real Indy Car.
