If you're a car enthusiast or merely enjoy seeing some rare vehicle offerings, then the Unser Museum is the ideal venue.

I have been a lifelong fan of CART/ChampCar racing so the name Unser is well known to me. My husband and I spent a couple hours enjoying the displays. I have always wanted to drive around Indianapolis Motor Speedway(IMS) and the museum has a simulator that gives you the chance to take a few laps. It was wonderful!

The museum covers the history of the Unser family in racing. The information is well presented and there are video machines that have nice videos that cover certain events. Many cars on display in the main museum and in the secondary building. Enjoyed the two hours we spent there.

The Unser family has deep roots in all kinds of racing across 4 generations. Beautiful cars that were really raced! Plus you can drive a Indy500 race simulator! An amazing collection of trophies and art work. We had an extra... More
