This is a fantastic, world-class collection of important road racing cars. These are cars that ran at classic races such as LeMans and the Nurbugring. How they all wound up in one private collection, in Philadelphia, is beyond me. If you consider yourself a sports...More

Thanks for visiting with us! The collection took about 50 years to put together, and we picked the best of the best at a time when they were still available. We appreciate your kind words and hope to have you here again soon.

Went to a party sponsored by the Italian Consulate. Food was catered. The cars on display are fabulous- a car enthusiasts dream.

This museum is awesome. All the cars in it are pedigreed in a sense of having a racing cache or special collector car heritage. It's not a huge museum but it's definitely quality over quantity. I highly recommend a visit if your a car person.

How cool is it that we walked in with Dr. Simeone and he personally made sure we were welcome?! We've come here numerous times for thrilling events. Always a great visit. Safe location, free parking. Membership saves you $$$.
