Took my racecar obsessed preschooler thinking this would be an instant hit. The museum is very well done, the staff is friendly, and even as a non-race fan, I thought the displays were interesting, particularly on this history of racing and the history of the Uncer children. That said, it was more frustrating than fun for my kiddo- nearly everything... More

I have been to several race museums. This one was tastefully done. Tour guides were close by to answer questions, but left you alone to take it all in. Car exhibits were the real deal. All exhibits were really great....

Spoke design in main museum where you can explore as much as you want. Lots of history and cars to explore. There's a second part to the museum in another building where there's a mock-up of the Unser garage along with some older vehicles and artwork. Well worth a stop!

Small museum packed with racing cars, motorcycles, and racing memorabilia. They offer a self guided tour with touch screen videos at numerous areas that explain in detail about each car. Or they offer a guided tour with a knowledgable docent. There are 2 buildings to view an a nice gift shop with reasonably priced items. Very interesting museum well worth... More

Two staff members greeted us on the start of the tour. Jim, walked us around the 'spoke' of the main museum and gave us an overview of the racing history of the Unser family. Then he explained the major vehicles and history of each of the 'spokes'. Jim later found us to see how we were doing and was very... More

This is a museum mostly reflects Unser Family’s racing history. Dedicated lives for racing. It is a good opportunity to see the real racing cars from past and Indy racing monsters. The museum consists of two parts in different buildings in one campus. Beside the race cars and old cars Unser Family’s hundreds of trophies can be seen in the... More

I have been around racing for 30+ years and to several museums. This one is a must! It is very well staffed with knowledgeable guides. Al Unser was there signing autographs and posing with visitors for a photo. It is well worth trying to find it.

This racing museum is very interactive and informational. It talks about the Unser family in racing and his impact on the sport. Lots of cool cars in the show room and they have a huge collection of antique cars as well. Lots of nice interactive displays to help you learn and enjoy your time here.
