No child imagines a racecar parked behind a velvet rope — where’s the excitement in that? They want to feel the sound of the engines reverberate in their ribs, hear the squeal of tires on asphalt, and smell the rubber, the leather and the gasoline.
And that is exactly why the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is so much fun.
The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is located at 6825 Norwitch Dr., Philadelphia, PA 19153, directly behind the Airport Auto Mall and 5 minutes off of Interstate 95. The museum is open on Tuesday–Friday from 10am–6pm and Saturday–Sunday from 10am–4pm. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $8 for students. Children under 8 are free when accompanied by a parent. Group rates are available. The museum partners with the Marriott Airport Courtyard to accommodate guests staying overnight in the area.
