Last week, the Petersen Automotive Museum of Los Angeles opened a massive new exhibit: Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy, which includes more than 50 vehicles from throughout science fiction movie history, along with other props and memorabilia.

Petersen Automotive Museum’s executive director Terry L. Karges tells Gizmodo the exhibit is the museum’s largest in its 25 year history, and is “is an ode to the industry that Los Angeles was built upon.” The exhibit includes a mixed-reality tour that uses a Microsoft Hololens headset to take a tour of the DeLorean from Back to the Future, and a Warthog from Halo.

Vehicles seen in the exhibit include classics such as Luke’s Landspeeder from Star Wars: A New Hope, K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, and brightly-colored Ford Rangers from Jurassic Park.

But there’s other, lesser-known vehicles included in the exhibit as well, like the AMT Piranha from U.NC.L.E., a Lexus Roadster from Minority Report, the police car from Back to the Future 2, and a number of others. The entire exhibit looks to be a fantastic parking lot of what we imagined the future of transportation might look like throughout Hollywood history.

If you want to check out the exhibit for yourself, it’ll remain open through March 15th, 2020. Tickets range from $11 (children) to $16 (adults).
