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. « less

We have watched the Indy race for years but never took time to visit the track as we only live 5 hours away. We recently stopped by and were glad we did. Even my wife, who is not a sports fan, enjoyed the time. The cost is not high and the tour of the track in the bus, stopping at... More

The Indianapolis 500 track is the first thing you think of when you hear racing. Not just any racing but American Racing at speeds of excess of 225MPH with Guys and Girls turning the wheel to the left. NASCAR is awesome to watch as you can hear and feel the vibration from the cars. Also you can walk down to... More

The museum itself is very good, but the highlight for me was the track tour. If you're like me you probably aren't ever going to take a car on the track at Indy, at least not legally. However, you can take a bus ride on the track and go a screaming 15 mph around the turns!! It may not sound... More

This is a great museum with more than enough to see inside the Hall of Fame, including all the winner cards and history galore. But for $20 ( $5 less than usual because the tour could not phsically go onto the track, as test runs were being done) you get the Grounds Tour, led by a very informative and enthusiastic... More

We love traveling to the Speedway in August for the MotoGP race every year. The track is iconic and historic. There is more to see and do even if there isn't a race that week. Upon pulling in the entrance I get goose bumps from the excitement. The "Yellow Shirts" can always help you find what you are looking for.... More

The museum is very cool. The best part of the time there is the bus ride on the track. A must to do.

Went here with our young family and were out within an hour. Neat to see all of the historic cars and trophies, but the kids were going through fast, so we didn't really have time to read everything. Had a 18 minute movie that starts every half hour that we saw a portion of. Had an entire wedding party show... More

We had an excellent time at the speedway, and have gone 3 years in a row. We had 4 tickets 2 years and took my brother and nephew who loves racing, bought him some NHRA merchandise, etc. Got pit passes too and that was awesome! My fav is the funny cars and the motorcycle class, but enjoy all events. We... More
