Philadelphia, PA - USA Today conducts popularity campaigns among best places to see and things to do throughout the country in their national 10Best series.  After a month of online voting under the category of Best Transportation Museums, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum was the most popular car Museum, and the second most popular among all types of transportation museums.

Recently honored three times by the International Historic Motoring Awards in London, the Academy Awards of the automobile history community, The Simeone Foundation Museum enjoys popularity because of a selection of special sports racing automobiles set in dioramas reliving the race tracks.  Regularly, these cars are taken out on a small track at the South West Philadelphia Museum and demonstrated for the public in a historical context.  Regular educational lectures and young driver safety programs are part of the mission of the charitable foundation.

The museum’s underlying inspirational theme, the spirit of competition, is demonstrated by the serial, chronological display of the world’s most important race cars and how they evolved stimulated by the desire to win.

Once described as "having more Mona Lisa type cars than any other automobile Museum", more information about the five-acre Museum facility located near the Philadelphia International Airport can be found at www.simeonemuseum.org.
