5 out of 5. Beautiful car museum, so interesting and informative. Pretty spacious museum. Every placker had information of each car and some had videos to go with it. And the space can host events such as parties.

If you life cars, especially old race cars, this is the place for you. Extensive collection of finely maintained vintage cars. The thing that make Simeone different from other car collections is that these cars are not just for display because they keep them in running order and about once a month on "demo day" they start some up and drive them around. Well worth the $15 admission fee. No need to buy tickets in advance because they never sell out. Check the website for the demo day schedule.

Definitely worth a trip for any car enthusiasts. 70+ cars in display, all in beautiful working condition. They even have demo day where they show them driving.

Extensive collection of racing cars range from the beginning of car racing until the 70s. A lot of interesting and rare cars, all of which raced and currently run. They are displayed in a large garage/warehouse and arranged according to where they competed. Plenty of information about each car and where it competed in a display that reflects where it competed. Staff are very friendly. Parking is free and kids, I believe under 18, are free. The museum is not near many other attractions in Philadelphia and is near the airport. You would need to drive there.

I went to the museum to accompany a true racing fan, and was blown away by the appeal it had on so many levels. Attending one of their Demo Days is recommended, but if your schedule can't fit that, the museum alone is well worth the visit. On Demo Days, it is thrilling to see (and hear) some of the world's most precious and important race cars as they drive past you on their way to the outdoor demo area. The viewing area for the demos is perfectly positioned. The staff does an excellent job making the experience awesome and safe for guests. Arrive early to study the cars up close and you'll discover beautiful design elements. If you'd like to see the engines up close after the demo, stay late after the bulk of visitors leave. You can fill the entire day studying the exhibits inside, which are organized in a way to tell memorable stories. This museum is not just for race fans, but would appeal to anyone with an interest in history or design.
