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

while this is certainly not something that will take much time, it is a wonderful little museum to visit if you are a car/race fan! Lots of cars to see and the staff are polite and helpful!

I wouldn't expect a museum in the area, but I guess among car dealers could be the right place! It's got much more than I expected for an unexpected visit. Will be going back for sure!

Stopped here on a whim and was fun. The cars were fun to look at and read the history of them. My husband really enjoyed it and spending a hour or so in AC was great! Coffee shop upstairs and no charge. Fun seeing race cars thru the years

Parking was easy in between dealerships. Museum was in the middle inside. Very nice inside easy to look at cars. Some you can not take pictures of, but nice upstairs there's a snack bar small store and lots of places to sit inside and out. There is a elevator to go up. If you can not use stairs. And its...

This is a nice indoor racing museum. If there were docents of the museum to talk to about the cars on display, I would give this an Excellent rating, right now only average. What would make this museum the best would be more details on the cars and who the drivers were. A hand out with more information would be... More

The Penske Museum is a very cool place. If you have at least a passing interest in car racing it is a must. This is a collection of Team Penske cars from several eras. One can trace the evolution of Indianapolis 500 race cars and see the changes as you walk through the museum. The cars are in pristine condition... More
