Volunteer at the Brand New Petersen!
What is a car?
Some may laugh at that question, but we at the Petersen Automotive Museum believe the car is:
… a work of art
… a shaper of cultural identity
… a marvel of technology
… a revolution in history
In short, we believe the car is more than four wheels and a transmission.
We seek women and men of all backgrounds to join the Petersen Museum’s Volunteer Team.
Help us explore and present the history of the automobile and its impact on American life and culture, with Los Angeles as the prime example. We are looking for enthusiastic, outgoing, and dedicated people to take on the following roles:
Help support the brand new, state-of-the-art Forza Motorsport Racing Experience by checking in visitors, administering reservations, and providing information about upcoming programs and events.
Discovery Center Assistant
Engage with families as they explore the hands-on experiences inside the Cars Mechanical Institute Discovery Center, designed through a groundbreaking partnership with Disney / Pixar. Help them learn more about the science behind cars, design their own personalized race car, or get inspired at one of the art and design stations.
Go on a journey of discovery with museum visitors as they experience the 25 brand new Petersen galleries. Chat. Share car stories and history. Ask questions. Make connections. And explore the art, industry, and history of the car together by engaging guests in conversational learning.
Library and Archives
Dive deep into the history of the automobile by helping organize, digitize, and catalog the Petersen Library’s incredible collections of historic automotive photographs and memorabilia.
No experience or special background necessary! Just a willingness to learn, have fun, and share your experience with others.
