There are some very interesting stories there but some of the videos were too long and I lost interest. A very nice collection of cars and trophies!

During the balloon festival, we decided to visit the museum. There are two buildings, one holding race cars and a newer one-with classical cars. Well worth the price of admission ($8). Not just a place for car knowledgeable folks but for other adults and children as well.

Stopped at the Museum for an hour, and wished we would have had more time. Some folks said they were there for 2 1/2 hours. Very friendly and informative staff to answer questions, cool cars and exhibits in two large buildings. Neat Indy Race simulator, and numerous videos and displays to watch. Antique cars and Race cars and several pieces... More

The Unser Racing Museum is a treat for anyone even marginally interested in racing! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the cars which the Unsers drive in the Indy 500, and also the old Sprint cars! The best part was getting to meet Al Sr. himself! He was very friendly, and we got to take a picture with him... More

We went here during the week and had the place pretty much to ourselves. The docent that escorted us to the second building was very personable, knowledgeable and gracious. While in the museum, he was able to tell us about all the cars and trucks on display. When the tour was completed, he sincerely thanked us for stopping by. Wonderful... More

A terrific museum and display of an incredible collection of the Unser family racing history. Two buildings available to tour that also include other very nice (non-racing) vintage cars. Al Unser was available for questions and photos...a great, down to earth gentleman!
