I'm a certified racing guy, so this is a must visit on the bucket list. Really surprised how well maintained the cars and display area is, the detail in each car is just right, but they could flow in date order a bit better. It was Rogers 50th year display and had some neat stuff from his collection. Drive to... More

Located in the Town of Speedway, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has a lot of history to absorb and enjoy. We chose the VIP Tour and highly recommend it because the bus and a guide take you around the track, into the Media Center and VIP Suites. It was raining while we were on the tour but still a lot of... More

Ok, so I should preface this by stating that we are not racing fans but had to see one of the largest sporting venues in the world while in town. Very cool to walk around the grounds and drive under the track. Since we aren't racing fans we didn't do the tour or the museum but still had plenty to... More

I was told we would need an hour and a half to ride the track and tour the museum. We really needed 3 hours. It's a fabulous museum- you feel like a race car driver! LOVED the track tour. Did not do Kiss the Bricks Tour and didn't feel like we missed anything. There was also a car show going... More

A great place to stop when in Indy. The museum has lots of great cars from the 100 years of the Indianapolis 500. Each time I visit, there are different displays and some different cars. This time they had a great Roger Penske display and also a tribute to Tony Stewart. The entire family enjoyed visiting.

Plenty of Indy Speedway and race car history under one roof. The museum is located in the center infield of the most iconic place of racing in motor sports. Then as frosting on the cake, we were able to examine a Aston Martin Vuncan. One of only 24 ever built. Amazing!

Great place to visit, open all year around. Make sure you take a ride around the track on the bus. You will see and learn a lot about the greatest spectacle in racing. Just imagine 400 thousand plus people,being there on race day! Amazing.

This museum is dated and only for extreme visual car enthusiasts. It was basically a giant room with many cars behind ropes. There was ONE car for kids to climb on for a quick photo op. There was a very dated and not informative 8 minute video. And that was all. The museum itself literally sucked and didn't present anything... More

I was in town for business and had some extra time so I was thinking of what I could do. Then I remembered the Speedway. At first I was just going to drive past it to check it out but then I noticed some people strolling in (just a couple). I went up to the gate and told the man... More
