We picked up the York county guide book. It's listed in there, but doesn't state only open certain times during the year and only Fri, Sat, Sun. We went on Thurs. It's in the middle of no-where field. Very large building, decent parking I guess for it's limited appeal. They have special activities as there is a "pick-up trip" bus... More

The owner is 100% hands on with visitors making you feel welcomed and appreciated for taking the time. Lots to see from drag racing, dirt racing and even board racing. Also an extensive library to browse so... More

My husband is a huge fan of Mario Andretti, who settled in Pennsylvania. This museum had cars and mementos of Mario that Husband had never seen before, so Husband was happy. The docents were very friendly and eager to talk about cars.

We stopped at the museum to check on possible history of an older race car that we own. The staff was extremely helpful and I was very impressed with the quality and quantity at the Museum

They have a great collection of racing memorabilia and all of the volunteers love to talk about the museum and about racing. We had a great time and I would... More
