Celebrating the Spirit of Competition

Demo Days at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum

At the Simeone Museum, you can see, hear and smell history come to life through these magnificent machines. Demo Days are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. The program begins promptly at 12:00 noon outdoors in the back parking lot. In the event of inclement weather, the Demo Day will be held indoors. Please be sure to check our homepage for weather updates.

We begin each Demonstration Day with a brief lecture on each car’s importance and its place in history. Immediately after the lecture, each car is demonstrated outdoors in the parking lot in a controlled setting, weather permitting. After the demonstration runs are complete, we lower the ropes and allow guests to see each car up close and take pictures. Please check our website for any last-minute changes, before coming to see the event. To see thousands of photos of past Demo Days, please visit our Demo Days Photos page.

Admission to each Demonstration Day is included as part of the regular General Admission price. To get tickets to our Demo Days, all you have to do is buy General Admission tickets below! Simply add up the number of Demo Days you wish to attend. If you aren’t able to attend a particular Demo Day, you can still use them to attend the Museum during regular hours.

For 2018, we’re adding a new twist – most Demo Days will feature a Special Guest Car which has never been seen at the Museum!
