My family knows nothing about NASCAR. The only reason we went here is because of TripAdvisor reviews. Everyone is spot on with the reviews- We have only 1 member of our family that likes museums - This place was such a perfect mix of history, information, and interactive displays that we all enjoyed it. Important to start with the film... More

We were in Charlotte for another event but had the Saturday before the 4th of July open. Bought our tickets on site. Parking is less than a block away and covered. The outside is impressive and there is a small green space for shade. There are plenty of people working and they explain where to start and what you need... More

Dude, sweet! What an incredible history of an amazing spectator sport. NASCAR is not something my family has experienced first hand so the museum was all new information. Even if you are not a cognoscenti of motor sport you should really see this place. A testament to talented human beings growing a huge business and national pastime from a grease... More

We have been to the NASCAR Hall of Fame 3 times. Each time the Great Hall has had a wonderful exhibit. We love the simulators and the chance to stay for a race party. If we lived closer, I am sure we would be members. Always something to see and lots of history to encounter.

The Nascar fan in our family loved this! The non-fans and kids were pleasantly surprised. Lots of historical information and the interactive exhibits made it fun for all! We had 2 hours to tour it and were a little rushed. We could have used 2.5 to 3 hours there. Kind of pricey (about $71 for the basic admission) for 2... More

We had a great time at the HOF. It has everything from bios to cars, to simulators! There was enough to do that we were never bored. We paid the extra to get the audio tour and it is money well spent, as it provided information that we didn't read elsewhere in the museum. A great way to spend a... More

I will start with this....my family is not NASCAR fans. We have never been to or even seen a race. The closest knowledge of stock car racing is probably our son's intimate knowledge of Disney's Cars and their protagonist Lightning McQueen. Nonetheless, the hall of fame is done Extremely well! With interesting and interactive exhibits, and fun activities for various... More

We really enjoyed the HOF displays, cars, simulators, and videos. We used the parking deck and it cost us $8.00. Basic adult admission cost was $19.00; they has different packages that include lunch and simulators. They do offer senior and military discounts. We did the tour in 2.5 hours and didn't feel rushed. Lots of hands on areas that are... More

The NASCAR Hall of Fame was a great place to stop and see while in Charolette, NC. It was very interactive for a musuem on nascar with a competing activity of changing the tire on a car. It was a great place to see many things related to racing and the history behind.

I'm not a huge NASCAR fan, but this place is really well designed. Lots of cars, history, and many interactive elements. I spent 2 hours here and didn't cover it all. I would definitely recommend it to fans and those who don't follow NASCAR. Admission for adults is $20.
