The Indy Speedway, dating back to 1909, is one of the most famous car raceways in the world. Even if you can't join the crowd of 400,000 that comes each May to watch the celebrated Indy 500, stop by for a minibus ride on the speedway. Then visit the museum that traces race car history, including a display of restored speed demons, starting with the first Indy winner in 1911.

If you are a fan of racing or just a car enthusiast this is one place that you want to take a walk through. The walk in time of cars throughout the year is just an amazing adventure to experience. The Indy 500 fan...ride on the track the greatest spectacle is on. You will not be disappointed by this.

Give yourself plenty of time here so as not to rush your experience. Great photo opportunities. Do the track tour, take your time to view all the historic race vehicles. Fun fact, IMS photo archives will allow you to view photo's from past races and you can order copies. I have a Pace Truck from the 1996 race and was... More

Even if we have lived in the Indy area for 24 years we had never taken this tour until we had out of town guests and were looking for something interesting to do with them. We found it to be fascinating and the guide very knowledgeable not just about the track but about Indiana in general. It is a great... More

While they don't offer any discounts (senior or military) the cost of the museum visit was well worth it. Inside you will find many vintage race cars and even one in which you can sit and have a picture taken by a friend or family member. Lots to see and well worth the admission price, even though the lady selling... More

My family went to this venue. I knew I would enjoy it, but I was surprised that my daughters and wife also enjoyed themselves. Take the time and money and pay for the more expensive tour and museum combo as the tour gives extras that a regular tour does not. I will be back to this place again.

For the petrol head in you this is a choice place to visit. The museum takes time to see ALL the historic vehicles exhibited. The track bus trick could do with a spruce up and fix the windows to allow decent photos.

On the way to Lincoln, NE to race a sprint car we stopped at IMS for a possible photo opportunity with our car in front of the museum. The staff were more than happy to allow us to park our car on the hallowed ground and the entrance to the museum. That't something ill never forget

The Hall of Fame Museum is located on the grounds of the Speedway, but it is definitely an attraction that you should take your time visiting. Located at the main gate (Gate 2), just east of the intersection of Polco Rd. & 16th St., it is on the north side of 16th St. Just follow the signs. On non-race days,... More

I've been here several times and it always gives me a new perspective. This is the world of the Indy 500. During the quieter times, when it's not race day, tours allow you to learn the history of the track, as well as take a first-hand look at exactly how large the track is - and get there early enough...

For car fans and anyone interested in racing history's or just history of Indianapolis, this is the place. Take the Grounds Tour- it is $30 but worth the price. The tour guides were great. The museum is very nice and the video is worth the 22 minutes it runs.
