    If you're into Alfa Romeos and/or vintage race cars, this is a great place to go. Not so much for road cars though they have some good ones. It's a bit out of the way (from my tourist perspective) esp...  more »

    This museum is mostly race cars of some sort. Lots of very early exotic stuff. When you first pull up, don't expect The Henry Ford or The Gilmore. This is in an old factory building and the inside is ...  more »

    Memorable. I was expecting a bigger place, but the quality of cars made it a great experience. We came from Michigan, so I envisioned something along the lines of The Henry Ford or the Gilmore. But this is very very good. Cars we have never seen before. However, they could use some AC. It got extremely warm in the building.

    Cool variety of cars. Fact "sheets" short and to the point. Walked around, read about half of the postings, and took a lot of pictures in about an hour. Nice people and go at your own pace.

    This place is a Gem! Decided to take my mom here as part of a day trip for her Bday. My brothers were very skeptical that she would like it. Well... seems like she enjoyed more than anyone!! Very impressive collection of cars. Lots of info to learn.

    Initiate look at important, historic race cars. Not many road cars, though there are a few. Lots of historic Alfa Romeo though- a must see for an Alfisti I would think. Seemed s.bit out of the way (in a mixed industrial/automotive sales/salvage yard area. Not too expensive.

    Amazing how well it was put together and the cars are very well cared for. And the car are incredible. And it's just a all around amazing museum.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks.
