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.

The best place to watch speed. Very easy to get in. This year I parked in the a home lawn close to the track. It is cheap and easy to leave the are.

The Speedway Museum at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is one of the most interesting sites in Indianapolis. The museum displays many of the actual cars that have won or participated in "The Greatest Spectical in Racing". I never get tired of looking at cars that I remember, that I saw race in person, that I saw race on television or... More

we love going to the indy 500 ! the only down side to it is the getting in & out of it no one wants to set in their car for 2-3 hours trying to get out so hopefully they will do something to better improve it soon !!

WOW! There is nothing like experiencing the Indy 500 in person! The sound of the engines roaring by, the speed, the thrill of it all! We sat in a suite and could see the Start / Finish line - amazing! Kissed "the bricks!". The drivers are all so nice and approachable and love to have their pictures taken with you.... More

Aisles for seating were poorly marked or not marked at all. the helpers were of little assistance. to get in and out of the place you have a narrow pathway that thousands of people had to share with cars trucks and SUV's and the pedestrians had to yield to the motor vehicles because of their police escorts.

The museum is always changing displays so it's worth a visit time and time again. Needless to say visiting a few days before or after the Indy 500 race avoids the huge crowds that flood this area during race weekend but even with the huge crowds it is all part of the 'Indy experience'.

This year was a great race, only coupled by the great organization. Everything was perfect: the race, the weather, the organization: CONGRATULATIONS

Speedway is long overdue for renovation which they say will be done in 2016. Traffic to the track is a big problem so leave early. However the event is epic and well worth attending

The venue facilities are getting very tired although going through annual renewal and updating. It has been neglected or minimally maintained for the 20 years I have been attending the 500 but they appear serious to play catch up. The track itself and museum are worth a visit just because it is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Disappointing that there is... More
