Explore The History Of Adventure Travel With The Petersen’s Overland Exhibit

Jul 1, 2021

Category: Living

Long before overlanding could be considered a weekend pastime, motorized vehicles were taking part in daring expeditions around the globe. Be it a car, bike, or some other oddball creation — so long as you had the gas and the grit, it was all systems go. And now in an effort to honor such exploratory history, the Petersen Automotive Museum is putting on an exhibit titled ADV: Overland.

Running from July 3rd to March 27th, 2022, it’s comprised of some 23 new vehicles, with record-setting motorcycles, Hollywood props, and NASA spacecraft models being just some of what you can expect. So, in addition to relics like the 1903 California (the first motorized ride to travel coast to coast), you’ll also find gems such as the 2019 Harley-Davidson Livewire built for Ewan McGreggor’s the Long Way Up and even a conceptual electric lunar motorcycle dubbed the ‘Tardigrade.’ Oh and for those sci-fi fans, we’d be remiss not to mention that the chariot from Lost in Space will be making an appearance — in both 1965 and 2018 reboot flavors. Snag a ticket now for just $25.

Purchase $25
