  • Free admission any day of the week definitely makes this worth a visit, especially if you are a long term race fan. Great to see the actual old race cars and many trophies on display. They also have some videos on loop showing the Team Penske history and the cars when they were in use. If you visit on the 3rd Saturday of any month they put on a free cars and coffee event out front with a good turn out of some cool cars. The cafe and gift shop upstairs is nice and that area is also open for renting out for corporate events and the upstairs may be closed for an event from time to time.
  • Very nice, small, museum with lots of history of cars within. The internal lobby has cars that date back to the late 60's and up to modern times. It also helps that it's in line with a Bentley, Lamborghini and Ferrari dealership among others.
  • Worth going to see if you are an enthusiast and in the area. It's not large but it's free so can't complain. There are also a number of exotic car dealerships attached that are fun to walk through as well.
  • This place is very cool. No charge to go, and the cars are very awesome. If you're in the area you must stop, well worth the time.
  • Great display of American racing history and the historic vehicles. Concise information placards. Enjoyable experience.
