To See and Do: 5 you can really see virtually everything here from the fan walk. There's also a pretty cool mock Shell gas station in the gift shop. You can also see the shop from the gift shop itself (at the same level) behind glass.
Accessibility: 5 as I've said above, there is so much to SEE here. From the engines to the fabrication to the dozens of cars to the haulers, everything is on display for the public to see.
Gift Shop: 5 like Ganassi, this shop is very comprehensive, AND has lots of merchandise for Penske's IndyCar teams. There's also pretty big discount section if you're on a budget. In 2012, they had team-used lugnuts for free, but I didn't see them again in 2013.
Friendliness of Staff: 3 oh boy. The first two times I visited Penske Racing (a year apart), the same receptionist (an older woman with glasses) treated me pretty badly both times. In 2012 she made fun of me for traveling alone, and in 2013 she tersely asked me, "Have you finally found anything you want to buy?" Granted, its just one person, but it pretty much ruined it for me. Thankfully I haven't seen her since.
