ABOUT THE MUSEUM
Featuring Automobiles From Around the World
The Marconi Automotive Museum is all about style, and class, with a touch of adrenaline. Our museum, formerly a salad oil manufacturing facility, was purchased by founder, Dick Marconi and opened to the public in 1994. Initially the museum building was purchased to house Marconi’s open wheel race team. Simultaneously, he moved his entire car collection in to the building and the Marconi Automotive Museum was born.
We are proud to house a collection of high performance street cars and race cars, among which are Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, American muscle cars, some of which are one of a kind. The open wheel car collection features cars driven by Marconi himself, his son John, and wife Bo. Additionally, there are many famous cars driven by famous drivers. A collection you won’t want to miss.
A suggested $5 donation goes to help children’s charities in our local community.
