Atlanta has the Coca Cola museum, Munich has the BMW museum, in Maranello there is the Ferrari museum. Similarly, are there any "brand" museums in LA or its neighborhoods? I know these museums are quite popular in Europe, but haven't seen anything in LA yet.

    What do you mean by brand museum?

Okay, so I've gone through several Wikipedia pages for southern California...

  • McDonald's Museum (also Juan Pollo) in San Bernardino
  • Fender Museum of Music and the Arts in Corona (I assume there are some Fender instruments)
  • Wells Fargo History Museum (Los Angeles and another one in San Diego)
  • Lawrence Welk Museum in Escondido

Related, if you like cars:

  • Nethercutt Collection in Sylmar
  • Petersen Museum in Los Angeles (Wilshire)

plus others


Probably not what you had in mind, exactly, but the oldest remaining Bob's Big Boy restaurant in Burbank has near-museum status, plus, you know... food.


The Universal Studios tour? Disneyland? (There are other entertainment industry museums, too.)
