We went on a lark after spending the morning at LACMA. $12 general admission for adults, an additional $25 if you want to tour "the vault," where they keep all the droolworthy cars in their collection that aren't on display. The museum itself is fun - carefully curated so you can stroll through in about an hour and see a nice variety of different vehicles and memorabilia. The vault tour was led by a very enthusiastic guide who literally talked to us about every single car in the vault - all 100 or so of them! Not someplace you'll need to hit up often unless you are a true car fanatic, but def worth a visit.

The problem with cars is that they take up a lot of space, and I imagine it's tough to make the most of the square footage available at the Petersen Museum. It's a random assortment of cars and things that are car-related, and ultimately it feels a little lacking.
Overall I'd say it's not really worth the time to go unless there's a particular exhibit you want to check out like a Porsche exhibit.
