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

I took my oldest Daughter, we had such a great time and really enjoyed it. Everyone we spoke with was extremely friendly and helpful. Would like to thank Phil and his great insight into all the cars. It was not just going and looking at all the cars on display but getting a history lesson on competition and racing around... 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

A unique and superb museum, in the most unlikely of settings. It looks like somewhere Martin Scorcese would film another mob movie, but it feels like a trip to Europe's best auto sites on the inside. An absolute must for any car buff. If you're in the Philly area, make time for it.

I had heard about this automobile museum in Philadelphia on a television show. I was planning a trip to Philadelphia and added the Simeone Automotive Museum to my list of things to see. Located in a nondescript industrial area near the Philadelphia airport, this collection of sports cars and racing machines, many have actually raced at Watkins Glen LeMans, and... More
