Owner description: 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 go to Indianapolis and don't come here, I think it's borderline unAmerican? This is the world famous start of motor racing history in America. Lots of Indy winners from the early teens to present and the Borg Warner trophy on display in the main room!

I moved to Indy several years ago. We frequently invite friends and family to join us for the "500." For any one who has even heard about the "500" or is interested in cars, the museum is a wonderful source of history of the race and has some great old classic automobiles. The track tour is also fun. Another way... More

We traveled with my sister and her son and all of us and her with her son loved it. We did a big tour and the price was worth it. We took home some great memories.

If you are into racing and history this is a must see. I attend the Indianapolis 500 each year and never miss going to the Museum. If you are ever in Indianapolis take the time to visit. You won't be disappointed!

Did not visit the Museum, but we did take a bus tour of the track. For the small fee, it is worth seeing the most famous track in the world from the driver's perspective.
