    »Automobile Driving Museum

    Only a few blocks away from the 405 freeway's endless torrent of vehicles, the Automobile Driving Museum provides an in-depth look at the machine that allowed the surrounding Los Angeles to turn into the sprawling metropolis it is today. It's not just the hundred and fifty classic cars that line the 40,000 square foot display space, but the loving nature of their preservation that makes El Segundo's Automobile Driving Museum a cultural treasure. This is all in spite of owners Earl Rubenstein and Stanley Zimmerman's absolute insistence that visitors get a real feel for the cars by climbing behind the drivers wheel and into the rumble seat, and even take weekly rides in the gallery's collection. The Automobile Driving Museum's wide appeal to car lovers, kids, and history buffs make this the perfect location to see rare automotive treasures and have fun doing it.

    »Otis College of Art and Design Galleries

    This is one of the best places to see both new and well-known works. It actually has two spacious galleries, the Otis Gallery and the Bolsky Gallery. The Otis Gallery hosts art and design exhibitions from all over the world. This is perhaps the more traditional art gallery of the two. The Bolsky Gallery, however, is run completely by students. Since both the artists and curators of the shows are students, here you'll find a more experimental feel both in the gallery and in the works displayed. Admission is free.
