I don't consider myself a race enthusiast, but I liked looking at the cars and how they have evolved in design over the years. There were quite a few cars in a small amount of space. You can even get your picture in one of them. Was a rainy day when we were there, but took the tour around the... More

This is was our second time to the Indy motor speedway. First time was a tour of museum and track (lots of fun) this time it was for an actual race the Brickyard 400. This was a NASCAR race and it was crazy fun. The cars are VERY loud and VERY fast. TV does not do it justice. Before the... More

If you are into automobile racing this place is a must. From 1911 to 2015 the cars of every era are here. All are lovingly restored to what they were when raced. This is a Must See in Indy.

This track is a great place to visit anytime. The museum is well worth the time and money if you enjoy automobiles and racing history. I have been there numerous times withfriends and family. I have been there for Chevrolet's Corvette day and for Bloomington Gold as well as race events and practices.

This was our second visit. Its always interesting to view the progression of technology and ideas through 100 years of racing history. If your not into auto racing it may be underwhelming. We took the track tour and drove on the track and walked on the brick finish line as well as a tour of the pagoda. A better value... More

Let me start by saying that I have Never been to the Race. It does not keep me from appreciating the History here and the beauty of Automotive Engineering displayed at this Museum. I majored in Museum Studies while in College, and I can safely say this is one of the best laid out and informative museums I have ever... More

This is the racing cradle. The 500 track is simply awesome to behold. The racing history here almost speaks to you gazing at the stands and track. The museum is outstanding. If you like any racing this is a must see attraction in Indianapolis. For race fans you will not be disappointed.

Visit this historical place. It is very inexpensive and I would recommend doing the museum tour and then take a bus around the track.

A series of left turns and a crash or two does nothing for me but, It was neat to see some cars on the track doing practice runs during race week. The museum had some interesting old race cars mixed with some of the newer cars. It also had some interesting info on the history of the sport, the Indy... More
