In 1994, Dick and John Marconi donated the building and their entire collection to form the Marconi Foundation for Kids, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. After Dick had achieved success both personally and professionally, he wanted to give back to the community that helped build him. Creating the foundation was the last chapter in his life mantra, “learn, earn, and return.” The museum continues to raise money for at-risk children’s charities throughout Orange County from visitors touring the collection and booked events.
The Marconi is located in the heart of Orange County and was voted SoCal’s favorite museum! We are home to an eclectic mix of over 100 vehicles consisting of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, muscle cars, race cars, motorcycles and memorabilia. Our race cars were driven by some of the greatest drivers in history such as Mario Andretti, Michael Schumacher, Aryton Senna, Nigel Mansell and more.
