having been exposed to NASCAR on Australian TV, so when we were going to be in Charlotte for a few hours, we decided to call in, what a thrill this place is amazing from the very first introduction movie you will become engrossed in the history, the sheer power of the passion that exudes from every exhibit.... The interactive nature... More

Start with the big screen movie as it is a great introduction to the sport. Then start on floor 2 and work up to 3 and 4. There are great displays of race cars, trophies, uniforms, a hauler you can walk through, etc. There are hands on kiosks to explain how a car is put together to what an officials... More

We had a business reception at the Hall of Fame. We asked a staff person how best to see the museum. She said most people go from floor 1-4, so suggested either going from 4 down to 1 or getting in line for the simulator before it got too long. Well, that's just what we did. And then we remained...

The Nascar Hall of Fame was a unique experience for us as we are not stock car fans. Nonetheless, the displays of winning cars on a banked track was captivating. This was followed by trying out racing simulators (my wife rolled her car), watching people trying to change a car tire and a group car racing simulation. We left the... More

I am not a NASCAR fan but my husband is, so this was for him. I resigned myself to, oh look a car, oh look another car. But nope it was fun. We got to play. We did a pit stop challenge against each other, I won (oh ok the guy there helped a bit) and a joint challenge against... More

Let me start by saying we were given the tickets for free. Had we not been given the tickets, I don't think I would have paid the $20 to enter the museum. I'm not a NASCAR fan, but the displays kept my interest. I found most of it to be on the less-technical side, more on the "look at all... More

Being a NASCAR buff from long ago, I loved seeing the old cars. The ticket prices are pretty outrageous and it is very hard to get to. Downtown Charlotte. Had to drive around an hour to find parking and then walk. Love the driving simulators. They need MORE of the vintage cars, less tech. Less Jimmy Johnson (Yawn)

We were in the Charlotte area on a return trip from the Bristol night race 2014. What a great way to end the trip. It was very interesting and we wish we were able to spend more time before our flight left. It showed the history from the beginning and had many active things to do while there. Make sure... More
