San Fernando Valley activities - limited mobility

Does the collective genius here have any idea in how to pass a few hours in the SFV - anywhere from Burbank to Calabasas (yes, the whole valley), such as a worthwhile museum, something other than a shopping mall, etc? Walking limitations of no more than a couple of blocks at a time, and relatively easy parking required. [Going eastward to Glendale or Pasadena is not in the cards this time.]

Two museums come to mind:

The Nethercutt Collection, if you like cars. It's in Sylmar: http://www.nethercuttcollection.org/

The Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley. Even if you don't like the fellow, they have one of the old Air Force One jets, which is worth a view.

Both the Nethercutt Museum and the Nethercutt Collection are free. The museum is open Tue – Sat from 9:00am to 4:30pm. No advance reservations or tickets are necessary.

I found the Nethercutt Collection to be more interesting than the Museum. It can only be viewed with a guided tour on Thu, Fri or Sat at 10:00am (and also at 1:30pm Sat only). Reservations are required.

Another overlooked attraction is the Japanese Garden in the Sepulveda Basin:

What specific locations might you recommend? Walking more than a few blocks and standing for long periods are out of of the question.
