Expected more . . . .$175 for a ticket $75 to park is way way way over what you should spend when attending something like this. You get a seat across from pit row and somewhere near the finish line but NO "club" access or other benefits , i was a bit taken back. Food was normal gouging price at ANY sports venue. Just bring hear protection which is NEEDED it is EXTREMELY loud ALL DAY no matter where you sit.
It was a good experience but I won't come again.

I found it to be boring. The cars are static displays with a sign telling you each car’s significance. Just a viewing museum without much education. I guess if you’re really a big fan, this would be exciting. I wish there would have been more history about the cars to read about. $15 to get in and it’s really not a thrill. The most exciting thing was driving into the parking lot. That was a cool experience.

The Speedway museum was the best. The history, the exhibits and the memorabilia were outstanding. A lot of cars were on exhibit a well.

At first we thought to just take a quick picture at an entrance but we decided to check the museum. Once we spoke with the hosts at the entrance we decided to check the museum. It was a wonderful experience. The museum is filled with history, wonderful facts and interactive experiences that are fun even for those how aren’t fans of car races. The experience was great and we enjoyed the visit much more than we expected. It’s a great experience for family or friends visiting.

Well Worth the price of the tour! .. our guide for our bus tour was very knowledgeable and friendly , we learned a lot about the history of the Speedway along with seeing the inside of the track. Could spend hours in museum looking at original cars, photos etc .. staff was very accommodating and friendly .

Visited Museum during GT American Race. Great display on Indy Cars and the history of the race track. Was surprised no NASCAR vehicles since they have been running at the track since 1994.

Okay, I don't care about cars at all. Only to drive them.

BUT--this was a great museum and a great tour. My husband, me and my infant son took this tour during a road trip we took to Indiana. We had completely forgotten this was even in Indianapolis.

When we showed up, it wasn't busy at all. We were told we could take a private tour around the track and the buildings. There was a Porsche event happening so we could kind of see that in the distance.

Wow--what a nice tour! It makes a difference when you can tell the staff is passionate about it. The two staff members that took us on the tour was so nice and went at a good pace for us who had a baby in tow.

We loved seeing the track, the special viewing areas for VIPs, the media areas and the garages. They answered all our questions and was so nice.

The museum is pretty cool also. Old formula one cars from past races, videos and gift shops. The tour really was the best part though.

Highly recommend!

They have a lot of the old winning cars on display and for a little bit extra a tour van will drive you around the track and let you off at the bricks near the starting gate, all while narrated by a friendly tour guide.

We got here at 9 o’clock when they open the gates, paid our admission & went into the museum. It was for rooms filled with race cars over the years and their stats. It was a 20 minute film, Biographies about race car drivers and two cars that we can get into and play around with. We were here for an hour and then went into the two large gift shops.

I went just for an Indianapolis souvenir and this ended up being my favorite part of the trip. You pull in through tunnels and the museum is in the island of the race track. Free parking. Nice employees. Impressive collection. They had a Penny machine and I Took home some postcards for my collection.
