i checked out several museums in so cal and left a few feeling ripped off

not so with marconi , they had a good selection of high end cars displayed in a super clean area , it was very quiet when i visited with only a couple of other folk walking around so easy to look and take pictures

well worth a visit...and thanks marconi for the reasonble admission prices ( theres a donation tub if you'd like to give more)

This was good with a large number of expensive cars.
One problem was that there was a lack of information.
There is an assumption that the "folk heroes" are well know to all the visitors which for international visitors is not necessarily correct.

The signage for the cars was good but in a number of places was missing, this was a pity and slightly detracted from the exhibit.

Worth visiting if you are in the area

What a variety. Cars are in beautiful condition. Mostly Italian and some domestic cars and memorabilia.

What a pleasant surprise! This is one little package well worth unwrapping. Had out of town company visiting and found this little treasure. A fantastic display of high end cars that we all wish we could take for quick spin. What really made it enjoyable was that you can walk around the car, enjoy the mechanics and appreciate the skill that it took to make these rare beauties. They also had a nice display of historical posters, pictures and of Mr. Maconi's colorful and generous history. We managed to stay almost 2 hours (and may have stayed longer if it wasn't closing time). Highly recommended.
