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

I read about the racing museum on Tripadvisor when I was looking for something different to do in Scottsdale. It was so cool to see the Indy 500 cars. I think any racing fan would enjoy seeing the cars up close and how they have changed over the years.

If you love high performance cars and racing memorabilia, this is the place for you. It is a sleek building tucked in the high end car dealerships in North Scottsdale. There are a number of Penske cars from both the open wheel series as well as stock cars from NASCAR. It is a smallish space but is full of interesting... More

Complimentary coffee (starbucks) and donuts / pastry. They even had cold drinks (water, sb milk / coffee mix) for those of us that don't care for coffee. Great display inside and better display outside :)

I got there with only an hour left to be open. Wish I'd had more time. Very neat to see the history of the Penske racing team from a 1970 Pontiac NASCAR entry all the way thru the Indy and LeMans entries. Unfortunately not pictures allowed of the Marlboro open wheel champion cars (maybe half to a 3rd of the... More
