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

I'm not much of a race fan, but after living in Indy for so many years, I thought I should check out the Speedway. The museum is really interesting, with several cars--one of which you can sit in for a photo op. The highlight for us was taking the tour around the track. They take you in a shuttle bus... More

Tour was very well organized. We got to stop at the brick start/finish line and take pictures. Museum was great with lots of cars throughout the years represented.

I'm not a race fan, but who hasn't heard of the Indy 500. The museum itself is very interesting, but the highlight for us was to take the bus tour on the actual track. You really get a sense for how big it is. There is another tour that takes you to the press box, winners circle and luxury boxes,... More

We visited here during our spring break visit with the Boy scouts. Its a nice place but there is not much to see. Some of the boys got bored. I think the price was a little high for as little stuff as they have there.

Been going to the track since the early '70's. We'll be there this May, will you? There are track & museum tours most of the year. But the month of May...Qualifying, Fast Friday, Carb Day are what it is all about.

If you enjoy Motorsports of any type.. you will definitely enjoy all that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has to offer. From Indy Cars to Motorcycles. If you like racing ~ this is the place to be! This facility is CLEAN & that is important when you have hoards of people passing through.

I am 43 now. My first time at IMS I was 17. Great day to skip school and enjoy sunshine.lol. Now that I am older to sit in the stands and be entertained by great bands, and to hear Jim Nabors sing Back Home In Indiana brings tears to your eyes. Sadly I hear he will not be singing anymore.... More

Even if you are not a racing or even sports fan, this place is worth a visit. With approximately 235,000 seats lining the 2.5 mile track, you won't see any place like this any where else. Built in 1909 and with the Indy 500 mile race nearing its 100th running (2016) this is where past, present and future collide (no... More

Been to 30+ Indianapolis 500s and every brickyard 400 since the first in 1994. Some races are definitely better than others, but the experience is always way worth the trip. The facility is so big with so much history, it's an experience you can't explain. Even if your not a race fan, you gotta go at least once. Bring your... More

By that, of course, I mean The Race (the Indianapolis 500) itself, which truly is the Greatest Spectacle in Racing. But if you happen to be in Indianapolis on any of the other 364 days, you will want to check out the track(s) and the Museum. Plenty to do and see any day they are open, and of course there... More
