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.
