The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California, has reopened today since shutting down due to the COVID-19 pandemic back in mid-March.
The reopening has grabbed headlines because a new guest helped kick off the reopening—Tesla’s Cybertruck electric pickup.
The museum pre-sold tickets for its reopening this week, where the Cybertruck will be available for viewing until June 26, 2020. The first fans visiting Petersen today shared the first images and videos of the event, such as the image seen above shared by William Correa to the Tesla Owners Worldwide Facebook Group.

There is also a video of the Cybertruck being unloaded outside the museum and also of the pickup on display. The electric truck is not roped off, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with the vehicle.
The Cybertruck is scheduled to start production in late 2021, while single RWD production is set for late 2022, according to Tesla’s website. The pickup will start at $39,900 USD before incentives in the United States.
