Tesla’s Roadster prototype is headed to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California, for two weeks from May 19 to June 2, 2021, from 10am to 5pm and also 6pm to 8pm.

According to an email from the Petersen Museum announcing the news (via @BLKMDL3), it says “be one of the first to see the new 2021 Roadster alongside the 2006 Tesla Roadster for this limited pop-up exhibition.”

The pop-up will see the Roadster available to for viewing seven days a week, plus there will be an “after hours experience for those who want to see the Roadster in a more intimate environment.”

Tickets are $45 USD and include after-hours exhibition access from 6pm to 8pm, the museum’s second floor, free parking and a limited-edition lanyard. These after-hours tickets are sold out as of writing.

General admission tickets give you regular access, but not the after-hours event.

Tesla’s Roadster prototype was first unveiled back in 2017 and can accelerate from 0-60mph in 1.9 seconds, with a top speed of over 250 mph and seats four.

Last June, the Petersen Museum also displayed Tesla’s Cybertruck, with the exhibition so popular it was extended beyond its original viewing dates.
