Visit one of the greatest collections of racing sports cars in the world at the Simeone Automotive Museum – a personal collection-turned-museum. Assembled by renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Frederick Simeone over a span of 50 years, the museum houses 65+ of the rarest and most significant racing sports cars ever built.
The museum’s exhibits are assembled to align with “The Spirit of Competition” theme celebrating how competition is crucial to progress – just as it is in natural selection – by delving into the evolution of each machine.
Walk through seven decades of ‘car breeds’ and see specific examples of how racing is the ultimate catalyst to improvement, first in the engine, then the whole car. You’ll get to see cars that date back to the early 1900s all the way to today. Some of the makes you’ll see include Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
Whether you’re a car fanatic amateur, or a hobby collector, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum offers visitors of all car backgrounds a way to learn about all the cars in the collection that is both approachable and infectiously inspiring.
In addition to its impressive permanent collection, the museum features a variety of rotating exhibits that further explore the spirit of competition and regularly hosts “Demonstration Days,” when the museum takes the cars out to a 3-acre backlot for visitors to see them in action – just like they did during their racing days.
