The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars spanning from 1908 through 1970. Over the last fifty years, they have found their way together in this location through the meticulous work and dedication of our founder, Dr. Fred Simeone. The greatest motorcar manufacturers in the world are all represented in our world-famous collection. Examples include Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, in addition to, Corvette, Ford, and more! In 2019, based on a data-centric methodology, The Classic Car Trust named our collection the number one classic car collection in the world. Additionally, the Simeone Museum library contains one of the greatest automotive reference collections in the world.
We differ from most other automotive collections because we use our cars to tell the story of the Spirit of Competition through the evolution of thought and design. Our guests love that we regularly take our cars our for spirited “exercise” during Demo Days and other special events. In addition to Demo Days, the Museum holds regular book signings, temporary exhibits, camps, car-club events, as well as featuring many automotive-themed events at our Philadelphia location.
Finally, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum welcomes families, groups, and photography. We encourage all visitors to engage with our staff and volunteers and hope you enjoy your visit.
