“Free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Admission is free to this small but interesting race car museum. It is a must-see for race fans when in the area. Plan to spend an hour if you read everything or less time if you just look at the cars.

“Very cool museum and it's free.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

It was cool seeing race cars, so close and reading the data about each one. It was clean and they even have snack bar, which we didn't eat at because we just had lunch.

“You Can't Beat the Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Yes, free is a very good price. Lovely setting for two story museum . My husband loves to look at these cars and read all the history about each one. We always say that if we move to Scottsdale, I would like the job of being the receptionist here because it would be so pleasant to work in this environment.

“I went to keep DH company, and had a fantastic experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

I'm not a fan of auto races. My husband enjoys the races, so I went along to the Penske Racing Museum. I got hooked on the gorgeous cars which were attractively displayed, with their stats well marked on plaques. This got me interested in the racing videos which were comfortably shown. They have a beautiful display of trophies which they've won. Entrance and parking is free.There is also a cafe which we didn't have a need for

“Great opportunity to see some really special cars!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

If you like NASCAR and or Indy/open-wheel racing you've got to visit this museum. The cars are fantastic and the write-ups describe them and their championship drivers in good detail. Plus the place is free. How can you beat that?
