Brb to the museum many, many times. The reason for this visit was to see the special Penske tribute for 50 years.. Loved seeing the Marlboro rockets from the 90's. Plus several of the winning cars from the 2000's. Tickets were $10 per person and well worth it.

Everyone was pleasant and willing to explain questions that I'm sure they are asked everyday. Gift shop is pricey, but most are.

We had extra time while in Indy and decided we couldn't miss viewing the track made famous by the Indy 500. It is huge! The museum itself is interesting but not knowing anything about the racing world I found it a little dull. The placards at each car provide a lot of information and someone with knowledge of cars or... More

A great place to visit, even if you are not a race fan. There is so much racing history here. We did the full tour. We were on the track itself and even got to stop at the start-finish line. We also got to see many things behind the scenes. Our tour guide was very informative. Well worth the trip.

We made reservations for the VIP Grounds Tour for our son's birthday, since he is a big race fan. When we arrived, we were told that we could would not be able to be on the track that day. Apparently, the folks who own/run the track do not give the museum much notice. That was a let-down, but we got... More

The tour or should I say the lap around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is worth the $8 ticket. It truly is worth the price and I highly recommend it.

Although I am not a race fan, going here made me appreciate the sport and history of it. I love the opportunity we had to go on the bus tour of the 2.5 mile track. Saw the bricks of the brickyard up close and personal. If you are in Indy, it is worth going to at least once.

Visited during Indy 500 and museum was very crowded. However it had nice setup and a lot of great racing history. Location could be bigger to allow for large crowds, however the museum was enjoyable and the gift shop had most of the souvenirs we were looking for. It's a must see

We were a large group (20 people) and I called in advance to make sure we could take the track tour. Brian Bobay, the track coordinator went above and beyond to make sure our groups (mostly veterans) had a great tour. He even gave them a "shout out" over the loudspeaker, thanking them for their service! The track tour takes... More

The Mustang Club of America had a "Thursday Evening at the Museum" party here during the 40th Birthday Party for the club. Three days at the Speedway including driving around the track as part of an attempt to break the Guiness World record for Mustangs in a parade. Didn't break the record but did break the record for most Mustangs... More
