“Fun for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

If your kids are into racing cars, you'll want to visit Penske's Racing Museum. There is NO cost to visit and you'll get to see Formula One cars from many era's. Upstairs they have a trophy museum and a nice sandwich bar to have lunch.

“Exciting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

2 compact floors of Indy, NASCAR and formula racing. This is a great free stop as an in-betweener. Ideal location for small to medium business conferences et. al. Your customers or management team would be positive about tour creativity and imagination if you held your meeting here. Stop for a quick look, I believe you will be impressed.

“Small but impressive museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I wouldn't go out of my way to visit here or make a special trip. But I happened to be in the area and found out that this was a short walk from the hotel I was in. It's a good way to kill half an hour if you love cars and/or are a racing fan.

This museum is in a building on the property of the Penske Automall. The Penske Automall sells every high-end European brand you can think of except Mercedes Benz. Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Porsche and a few others. Just walking the lot can be exciting if you love cars.

The museum is small but well executed. Most of the cars represent Penskes Indy successes, but there are also a car or two representing IROC, NASCAR and some other series that Team Penske has raced in. Some models and trophies on display too The place is very clean and well organized. There is also a small cafe that has food and coffee for purchase.

Any chance I have to see fine cars, whether racing machines or street vehicles, makes the inner ten year old in me happy. So if you need to make your inner ten year old OR your real ten year old happy for a little while, it's worth a stop here.

“Interesting walkabout.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This car collection housed in a beautiful building is a free offering with a small selection of top notch Indy cars. There is a decent looking little cafe upstairs and is well worth a visit if you are a race car enthusiast!
