About
The Marconi is home to a collection of over 100 vehicles, worth $60 million consisting of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, muscle cars, race cars, motorcycles, memorabilia and more. In 1994, Dick and John Marconi donated the building and their entire collection to form the Marconi Foundation for Kids, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. A portion of net proceeds from museum visitors and events hosted is donated each year to charities and organizations that help children in need. For more than 25 years, the Marconi family has been working diligently to do their part to help at-risk children throughout Southern California.

Excellent selection of vehicles although slightly smaller than some museums I have visited. I happened to be there during an event so there were members of the public in their cars to look at as well. Warm and welcoming staff

This is the Automotive Museum. They show many autumotives and bikes.

These are really expensive.

The owner died and asked to make a Marconi Automotive Museum.

There are beautiful cars. Wow!

This is a must see!

The owner of many gorgeous cars and motor bikes could be seen in this museum. When he dies they asked someone to do a museum of Gorgeous cars.

If I remember it was a 5$ to enter in.

Al these sports cars were well taken care.

I liked what they did and I applauded for that.

A must see!

This museum has a wide variety of enthusiast cars. Muscle cars, Ferrari’s, Lamborghinis 50’s cars rolls royces and motorcycles. If you have a dream car chances are they have it.
Entrance is only 5 dollars and parking is free. The cars are not roped so you can get very close and it is very child friendly. If you are a gear head it is a must. It is not huge so you will be finished well within the hour, so it is more of a pit stop than a day trip, but nonetheless a great pit stop.

Admission is a minimum of $5/person. You can get up close to all of the cars and motorcycles - none are roped off. All cars have an information panel with them so that you can learn more about them. A really neat experience to see these rare cars. You can go at your own pace through the museum. Washrooms are clean. Parking is free and available in the lot immediately outside the museum or on the street.

This collection has a great variety of cars and motorcycles and should appeal to anyone interested in motor vehicles. The gallery contains everything from race cars and Ferraris and Lamborghinis to muscle cars and one-of-a-kind projects. We spent about two hours touring the museum and reading the information about Dick Marconi and each vehicle in his collection. The attraction operates as a non-profit organization that funds a children's charity, so the admission is a suggested donation of $5 per person (but you can give more!). The entrance to the building has stairs but there is a wheelchair lift to provide access. Note that the museum is not open on weekends, and it rents out for private events so check before you visit to be sure they're open. We went on a Wednesday morning and it was quiet; we had the museum mostly to ourselves.

Its all for the kids. The museum funds charities that help at-risk children. They only ask for a $5 donation to tour the museum. It is small but it is worth at least $10! It has some one-off Ferrari's and some vintage Lamborghini's. Plus it has a Cizeta-Moroder. You have never seen one of these!

Enjoyed this automotive museum. $5 donation to enjoy this nice collection of automobiles and proceeds go toward helping children in need. If you enjoy cars, you need to support this fine museum!

Great place to have a company party... Many of us engineers are car buffs so we had a blast with the cars that were being exhibited during our dinner party.

My son knows I like to photograph antique cars. He located this museum nearby and we went with family and grandkids. It is actually a foundation, thus they only ask for a minimum $5 contribution to see all the race cars, antique cars, motorcycles, go karts, you name it if Marconi raced it. Marconi donated his entire collection to this museum. So the donation is for a good cause.
While this museum is not as large as others visited, it is packed with exotic cars, indy race cars, racing motorcycles, racing go-karts and a few antique classic cars. All well detailed and shining in the fluorescent light. We spend a little over an hour to take images and admire these cars. Well worth your time.
