If you go on a non-race day/week then you can go to the museum and see some of the old Indy 500 cars and then pay $8/person to ride a shuttle around the track. It's totally worth doing. The whole track is quiet and it's...More

If you have never experienced the Speedway you are in for a treat! So many improvements have been made in the last 5 years. It is like a new facility! But, be aware, there is a lot more walking than you can imagine! There are...More

The visit was part of a conference I was attending. The speedway by itself is quite a visit. Instead of TV adding size it makes it look smaller. The place is big! Watching the racers get ready for the big race was entertaining and can...More

Have been to the museum on several occasions and find it interesting every time, those with me also (even if you are not a knowledgeable fan). If you can go in May during the practice and time trial definitely worth the afternoon, the weather is...More

This is an incredible museum. Worthy of visits from young and old alike. Not only do you get to relive the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway but the history of motorized sports in America. Because in essence it all started here. History, beauty, tragedy...More

My husband is a big race fan, he loves to visit. I am not as big a fan, but it is interesting and enjoyable. So much to see, and absorb.

We went with some work colleagues so there was 12 or 13 in total. The benefit of this is that we got a bus to ourselves and effectively had a private tour of the track. The hosts were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and were never...More

My husband could spend hours here. I'm not as big an enthusiast of the history, but I always find something new here. Someday, I'd love to visit the basement, but only VIPs get this experience. They only can display about 75 cars at a time,...More

Loved the whole race track experience up close. We saw everything. Loved walking the track and "kissing the bricks.' Such history and such a tradition. Loved seeing the old cars. It's a must do .........

We did the Indy Speedway Museum and VIP Grand Tour of the track. What a great day! The museum is not bad, if you love old Indy cars, you'll love it, but even if you don't, it's still interesting enough. The $30 Grand VIP tour...More

I think this all depends on your interest in motorsports. We've had people spend half a day here. The typical time period is probably an hour. The VIP tour adds 90 minutes to that. The Kiss the Bricks tour is an... More

The museum is located within the infield of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway track, not far from several plants and downtown Speedway. There are residential areas immediately to the west and north. There is some crime in the... More
