This is a fantastic collection of racing sports cars with some absolutely notable race-winning examples on display. All the cars run and are often taken out into the yard for demonstrations. Even seeing them "static" in the museum is worth the trip. A little out of the way near the airport, the Simeone is not hard to reach by public... More

Love this city. So much to do that I look forward to coming back every summer to take it all in. Every trip so far has included a half day set aside for the Simeone Car Museum. Came on a Wednesday and saw the prep for demo day where they take these beauties out and run them around their track... More

Nestled in the area of the Airport Auto Mall, this unique Auto Museum is well laid out. Many vehicles of interest are presented in a fun way.

We were lucky enough to be there on a quiet day. Dr. Simeone was there and he decided to take out one of the vintage BMWs and drive it around the lot. The place is immense and the displays of classic cars are very well done. Great for kids of all ages. Our young son loved the cars just as... More

The Simeone Foundation hosts an incredible collection of approximately 65 historic automobiles, tracing the early years of motorsport racing, from the turn of the century to the mid '70's. The vehicles are grouped by racing genre, i.e., Endurance, Mille Miglia, Le Mans et al. The highlight of my latest visit was Demo Day. These are held bi-monthly, and on these... More

This is not flashy but basic while most of the cars are not all prettied up but in original condition - which makes it unique. Tons of history here ! A must see for anyone with even mild interest in this sort of thing . Close to PHL airport so good way to kill an extra hour or 2 .

We all need to say thanks to Dr. Simeone for building a place like this. To be able to attend his special weekends shows and to see and hear these cars running is something I have only experienced once before at Briggs Cunningham's in So. Cal. I had given up hope hearing a 4 cylinder and a 12 cylinder Italian... More
