We were in Scottsdale for a week prior to the Nascar race and drove by luxury auto row. In the midst of it is this free museum. It was very clean and modern. The lady at the front desk was cheerful and informative. It took less than an hour to look at the cars and the trophy cases.

Perhaps one of the most un-known museums in metro Phoenix, this gleaming gem (on Scottsdale Road, a few blocks South of the 101 freeway) boasts 21 of the most incredible racing winners dating back to 1963. Educational tidbits list facts about each car. Given the massive value of these beauties, the small show room sits between some of the world's... More

This "museum" is in Scottsdale and is part of an automart owned by him. It is a nice bright modern building with some of the race cars on the bottom floor and models, trophies and items you can buy on the second floor. There is a reasonably priced snack bar but items for purchase are quite expensive. I expected more... More

Roger Penske's racing ventures span a wide range from Indy Car to NASCAR and even IROC. Fine examples of each can be found at this excellent museum tucked between exotic car dealerships (be sure to visit Lamborghini next door). Also a huge trophy display and Penske merchandise for sale. Best of all, it's free!

This was a hidden treasure. I did not expect to find the extensive collection here. If you love racing of any sort, it is well worth the time to make the visit.

We went to the free for admission Penske Racing Museum. It was fun to see these superb racing cars. There was nice descriptions of the drivers as well. There was also Indianapolis 500 pace cars to see. On the 2nd floor of the museum there is a cafe (sometimes open). There is also many championship racing awards, a tourist store,... More

Penske has to store his legendary racing machines somewhere. So he showcased a few of them as centerpiece to an autoplex carrying his name. It's free, and worthwhile. Plus, you can check out that new Beemer, Cayenne or Jag you've been seeing in the hood.

It may be a small museum, but wow! What a lot of racing history and memories. Classic racing cars at their best. There were even bricks made into a walkway that were made by the same company that made the original bricks for "The Brickyard". The only downer, was that photos of any of the Marlboro cars were not allowed... More
