Took the full kiss the bricks tour including the back stage part costs a little more but worth it. The museum is staffed by well informed staff that give you the feeling they care about what they do and that you have a good experience.

The time trials prior to the 500 are a neat and inexpensive treat. It's not the full race experience by any means but has a great and fun feel to it. If you can't do the 500, stop in during time trials week.

We have attending the Indianapolis 500 for over 35 years and keep coming back because of the amazing experience. If you have never had the opportunity put it on your Bucket List, especially if you like cars and racing!

We go to the race with a group of friends every other year. Beautiful place always extremely fun. The race has so much going on that weekend. Our favorite is the Snake Pit during the race.

We came to IMS for a victory lap. It was as I expected it. My 9 year old had the time of his life. The lap is extremely fast, was over in 1.5 min, so $60 seems a bit steep. A professional drives the car, so it's quite an experience for kids. My son is still talking about how awesome... More

We were fortunate enough to have a behind-the-scenes tour. Got to get our photos in the winner's circle, see the press box, get on the track and kiss the bricks. Great fun for our family!!

Pace car ride was everything and more than we expected. Riding around the track at speeds over 125 mph.

We have sat in Grandstand C, in the top rows, for many decades. The race never fails to be exciting. The ticket price (@$100) is worth every penny. Even if you have never been to a race event, this one will be something you will never forget.
