Very nice place. Plenty of parking space. Clean and very organized. There was a kids corner that my son loved and a coatroom. The racing cars were amazing. We will go back for another exhibition.
I loved the museum. The went for the NNL Philly model car show and sale. The museum was having a demonstration day program and pulled two cars out of the building to allow everyone to see them run and get up close. The cars were a GT40 Mark 2 and a GT40 Mark 4 and the unmuffled sound of 427 Ford motors from the 60’s is great. The car collection is large enough to spend time with, but not so big you can’t get it all in. It is a raceing sports car museum so you won’t find a bunch of Model T’s. No this is much cooler.
This car museum specializes in rare race cars from the teens to the 70s. Each car is a work of art. The museum displays the automobiles with descriptive plaques for each, videos in various sections, and a free mobile phone app with additionally written descriptions and audio mini-lectures. You can get a feel for the place by downloading the app in advance of a visit; it’s available for Android and iPhone. There is free parking on site. Adult admission is $12. Child, Senior, and Military discounts are available. The museum hosts a variety of special events and programs throughout the year. The museum can be rented for private events.
By far one of the best car museums I have been to. The focus around race chronology rather than car chronology made the museum much more exciting as adjacent cars were vastly different and you could see the progression.
What a cool place to go to. Some of the coolest cars you will find in the area outside of the Philadelphia Auto Show which is only in town once a year where that this place is open all year old long. Be sure to bring your camera and plenty of time to be able for the Full Experience. I was told there is a Ferrari here worth more than 2.5 million dollars. If you want to see some of the greatest cars of History this location has to be on your must go to list. They even have one of my favorites a 90s fairlady Z unmolested.
This is on my Philly Insider Tour. It’s a local gem for kids who love cars, and their kids. Oops I mean grown up kids and little kids from age 5 and up. The museum has a large collection of Hudson Hornets and boat tailed cars. You can get up close, see the interiors, and take great pictures.
