Honestly, at first I wasn't too thrilled to hear our group was visiting this museum. However...WOW! It is definitely worth a visit and I couldn't get enough of the place. There is so, so much to look at! The displays are varied and it's unbelievable to see so much memorabilia of all different kinds in one location. From historical and... More

This is a must for anyone who loves racing, or cars, or just american history. I have toured this museum twice now and would love to go back again. What an excellent museum tucked away in West Lincoln. The only negative you could really give them is that they have limited hours that they are open. If the hours could... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review of the Museum of American Speed. I’m glad you had an excellent time at the museum. As 2015 approaches, we are working to find ways to bring more open hours during the week and not lose the personalized approach that has made us so popular. Please watch our Facebook page for...

I'm local so I visit annually but I highly recommend anyone interested in racing and automobiles make it a stop. It's within 3-4 miles of Interstate 80 and worth your time.

Community bankers held a private event at the museum, and it was so fun! The exhibits were great and so personal. We had a fun 50's diner experience with our meal, and the hosts were very gracious and personable.

The website was a bit unclear on their actual hours they are open. I arrived with guests one day at 1:15 and was disappointed to see that it was only open 2-5 pm. So I went the next day and had a pleasant tour of about 2 hours. I am not a huge race fan, but loved the pedal cars,... More

Thank you for reviewing us here at the museum. I’m glad you were able to make it out to the museum and you had a pleasant tour. I hope, I can clarify our current hours for anyone else looking to visit the museum. We have winter and summer hours so it is a little harder to get out here to... More

Impressed with the quality of exhibits and friendliness of volunteers. Would have like to be able to spend more time reading exhibits but because they are only open a few hours was unable to spend as much time as we would have liked.

After going through this museum, I want to go back again, and again. There is so much to see and learn about. I especially enjoy learning about the history of racing and some of the people that pioneered the industry. I will definitely be going back to make sure I haven't missed a thing. If you plan on going, make... More

We were invited as part of a University Engineering event to come out and have some dinner and see the museum. I'm very much involved in engineering, design, and racing and have been for 40 years. I did not expect to see something like this in Lincoln NE and was blown away. From pedal cars to nascar, lunch boxes to... More

Lots to see and great story telling from the tour guides. If you have any affinity to automobiles and/or motorsports, give this place an afternoon.

First and foremost, read the other reviews as this is not for everyone. That being said, I am not a gear head or huge racing fan. I had a few hours to kill and stumbled upon this on TripAdvisor. There was about 20 or so people that showed up so they split us into two groups. It is over 2... More
