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.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway museum

When in Indy, you have to visit this museum. 100 years of history should not be missed & if you're lucky, maybe a race will be in town for bonus viewing.

Experienced the Brickyard 400. Parking was surprisingly good and I highly recommend the tram ride to the infield merchandise area.

We attending the Brickyard 400 as a track for our bucket-list and then returned to tour the museum and take the track tour the following day. Very informative, provdes a nice overview the of track history on a short film with various cars from past races to view. The track tour puts you on a bus with a prerecorded narrative... More

Went here for the Brickyard 400 and had a great time. As always prices were too high for food and drinks, but you have to expect that. Seat on the main drag were great. Staff members were all very friendly even with the heat.

If you are a fan of any type of auto racing this is the holy grail! This is a great time to visit since 2016 will be the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500. For an additional fee, is an opportunity to ride in a 2 seat Indy car with a professional driver. The Museum is well worth the money.... More

Woke up Sunday morning and decided to take an impromptu 4 hour trip from to Indy for the race to see my favorite driver Jeff Gordon in his last race at his home track. I was quickly disappointed when he crashed early on :( This track was absolutely beautiful and the easiest track to get in and out of. This... More

Indy is great! Everyone should go just once, even if they are not a big race fan. There is nothing like it! Once in a lifetime experience! It is a must do and must be in your bucket list!
