If you are interesting in cars, this museum is for you. Dr. Fred Simeone has put together this amazing collection of 60+ racing sports cars dating back to the early 1900's. They are all preserved, rather than restored, and are all kept in running condition. They have "demo days" once or twice a month, when a few cars are taken... More

My husband and my 3 boys had a blast. I had a blast seeing them have fun. I don't think it is very big, but pretty nicely exhibited and some very cool cars from different eras. It was not busy, it was quite cheap and the staff was very helpful. It was a great stop on the way home.

If you are a car person this is a place worth experiencing. The Staff are extremely helpful and nice and the quality of cars on display is amazing. There is also a smell in the air that just adds to the experience (think race car). I have lived in the Philadelphia area my whole life and finally made it here... More

The museum is larger than it looks, and even has a guided tour that can be downloaded in the apple or google app stores. We are new to the Philly area and we were looking for something fun to do when my parents came to visit. Dad loves cars and has made his career as a mechanic. The week that... More

This is a nice enough little place. I live nearby and had never heard of it. It has quite a few cars I have never seen before outside of a magazine or whatever. This is the third museum of this type that I have taken my kids to, it had the fewest cars. I am under the impression that they... More

We spent a week in Philadelphia. On day 5, we decided to venture out of downtown Philly. While researching for things to do close by, we stumbled upon the Simeone Car Museum. My husband is a car buff and worked in the racing division of large automotive company. He loves old cars. The museum blew us away. Seeing so many... More

I have been to several car museums, and this one is tops in the pre-1950s cars. They also excel in race cars, not just classic cars. I saw on MotorWeek that they routinely take the cars out and run them around the lot and the public is welcome.
