If you are into Indy car racing this is the place to go, the museum seems to have every car from day one to the present. You got to see the advancements in racing over the years and check out the cars that were driven by the big names in racing. What we enjoyed most was the bus trip around... More

Fun place to see racing's greatest track history as well as open wheel and NASCAR history, pictures, cars, and memorabilia. Nice gift shop as well. On second floor there is a room of extra photos that can be bought but you have to find the room on second floor. Definitely worth your time.

I'm not much of an auto race fan but found the tour to be interesting and run by pleasant folks that seemed to love their jobs. I thought it was worthwhile.

I have been here a bunch of times and always had fun as a kid. It is probably better if your kids are old enough to read.

You dont have to be a petrolhead to enjoy this museum. It simply reeks of history! The cars on display are all a work of art and the displays themselves are stunning. Definitely a place to see if you are visiting Indy.

I took the track tour and spend hours in the museum. The historical collection inside the museum is very impressive and comprehensive. The track tour was great, and the tour staff were very friendly and accomodating taking photos of us on the bricks, showing us behind the scene areas and answering questions. The price was a good value, too.

A must-see for any car racing fan. In my opinion, the greatest car race on Earth. Not as thrilling as it once was, but still great fun. The museum is also very good and a must-see while there. A race-car driver from the present or past could appear at any time...Some/all of those old race cars are sill maintained thoroly... More

We took the full tour of the facility and toured the museum...it is worth the price! We got to go all around the track in the bus, they then took us on the full tour of the media center, the garages, and we got to kiss the bricks! We attended the Brickyard 400 and it added to the tour!

Went for a weekend getaway and visited the speedway and the museum. They have a lot of collection of gorgeous Indy cars. We also took the tour on the speedway track and since it was late in the day, we were the last ones and actually had a private tour in the tour bus which was great!
