The museum is small but interesting. However, the Museum was not the most significant aspect of our visit to the Penske facility. Roger is a dealer for Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls Royce, BMW, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Audi, Maserati, Porsche, etc etc. The inventory of these new (and used) vehicles on display is wonderful and we spent far more time looking at...

This small museum is located in an exotic car mall in Scottsdale. Very interesting for a gearhead like me and while I would like to give it a higher rating, the size is the limiting factor. I would imagine most of the Penske cars are already in private collector's hands but there was a fair representation here. I have been... More

I love free attractions and this is a great place to visit and spend a couple hours looking at all the past Indy 500 Winning Race Cars from the Penske Collection. I take friends and family to this little gems when their visiting for a few days. We often stay and look at all the dealerships in the area too.... More

This was such a fun place -- younger kids can race, and then so can the bigger "kids" -- us adults. Lots of memorabilia to look at enjoy.

Not Penske's entire collection of cars but still worth a visit if you are a NASCAR or Indy racing fan - about 20 cars. Besides, it's free! It's tucked in the middle of several luxury car dealerships so we went by it several times before seeing the sign on the bldg. Plan on about a half hour of your time.... More

If you love cars like my husband, son, and father-in-law...this is a must to visit! Penske has some great cars to check out, there is a small gift shop available, and is near some really nice dealerships with equally great cars.

The ability to see a number of famous race cars for free cannot be beat. They have Indianapolis 500 winning race cars, and a number of other championship cars and artifacts.

We had a spare hour to fill getting out of the rain. For a free museum they have a lot of cars on display, from NASCAR and Indy to pace cars. You are not allowed to take pictures of the Marlboro cars due to advertising but the beer cars are OK. If you like your race cars take the time... More
