Owner description: The Indy Speedway, dating back to 1909, is one of the most famous car raceways in the world. Even if you can't join the crowd of 400,000 that comes each May to watch the celebrated Indy 500, stop by for a minibus ride on the speedway. Then visit the museum that traces race car history, including a display of restored speed demons, starting with the first Indy winner in 1911.

“Very Popular Indy Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We live about 20 minutes from the Speedway and have visited the track/museum once. It was a neat historical experience, and for those who love racing, it is a must!

“The Tour Is Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The museum is awesome and the track is hallowed ground for any sports fan. My son and I took the track tour and it was very cool. You get to ride in a bus around the track and actually walk on the front stretch. The only time you'll ever get to do this-I've got the greatest picture of my son climbing the infield fence. We got to go up in the press box and stand in the winner's circle. It was a really special day.

“Great place to take out of town guests”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

A great place in Indiana to take out of town guests, especially if they are car and/or racing enthusiasts. The museum isn't the biggest, but a perfect size to make a fun morning or afternoon and partner with a good meal nearby.

“Great museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Great Museum - fun for all. Racing is fun, but you must remember this is not a small track and you will not see everything like at a small track. Stands are hot partially because they are have closed in bottoms and does not allow airflow. Pack a cool hat, plenty of sunscreen and cold drinks. We always pack some moistened handkercheifs or hand towels in zip bags and add them to our cooler - they really help. Like any outdoor event - plan for everything. Have fun!
