February 18 to March 12, 2017.
quoting the website:
A salute to the history of the great AC Sports Car.
For the first time in memory, an historical exhibition of the sports car which led to generations of winners on all types of road courses, right up to the Cobras that won America’s first World Championship. From February 18 to March 12, 2017, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum will exhibit some of the finest AC cars and their derivatives, from their origins through the 60s and beyond.


The Museum's website says that additional details and list of cars will follow.

The Museum is located near Philadelphia [PA] International Airport.

Went to the Museum today for a "two-fer"... this Exhibit and the British Beauties Demonstration Day, WOW.
The demo day was very nice with 7 cars displayed/discussed and 4 driven on the gorgeous 70-degree February Saturday.

The ACs are stunning. Well worth a visit  Cool
 [I think that?] The guy who set it up said that it is the largest gathering of AC cars ever in the USA. A few pix:
Early 4-wheel car (they had one of the super-early 3-wheelers lined up but the owner backed out for some reason)

Hmmm .. the list that the Museum posted earlier does not seem to be an exact match to the cars on display (at least not yesterday)
They did not have the CSX2287 [Coupe] parked in the special exhibit area.
We saw CSX3010 [absolutely stunning car] at 3-Dog a couple of weeks back (LOVE the gold leaf stripe)... did not see it at the Museum yesterday?
