We went here before we went to the race. Such a cool place to for NASCAR fans of all ages and see cars up close. We purchased tickets for the tour and got to drive the similar. If you're looking for something to while you're in Charlotte I would recommend this and go to some of the other shops also.

This is their place, all they want is your money. Don't waste time and money is this boring museum. You have to drink coke, there is no WiFi, the taxes are not included in the entrance fee, everything is really expensive. Its a tourist trap.

We saw a bit of North Carolina history in Charlotte. We are not race fans but enjoyed the history aspects and our son loved seeing the race cars. He may be a fan because of the visit. a great stop for folks walking to the Panther's game from the area hotels.

This is a wonderful and very complete display, I must admit cars are not my thing, but my husband and son thought it was great and I did find some interesting things myself.

My husband is a huge NASCAR fan. We purchased tickets for the Insiders Tour that featured an onsite visit with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. So worth the money. Tour 85 rocked. The nice thing was that you could return to the Hall of Fame the next day at no additional cost so you could take your time looking at the exhibits... More

I have been multiple times as a father/ daughter trip to Charlotte for the races. It's fun for young and old alike. Our latest trip to the HOF was with our friends and their young (2 or 3 year old) boy. We all had a blast. There are plenty of activities for children of all ages (they're fun for adults... More

The simulators need to be recalibrated as you could hardly control the cars (and we each tried several different cars) and my husband got food poisoning eating the BBQ. I did speak with James by telephone after our return and he was going to have a member of mgmnt contact me, never happened. VERY disappointed that the NASCAR name is... More

Awesome display of NASCAR from its origins in bootlegging to the modern day with spectacular interactive displays and simulators. Located downtown near with restaurants and entertainment nearby. Convenient parking less than a block away, don’t let Google Maps park you a 15 minute walk away like I did!

My company had an event here. I'm not familiar with NASCAR so it was all a bit lost on me. It's hard to figure out activities, no real signage. The food we were served was ok but scattered throughout the facility. Bar prices, outrageous. I totally get paying bar prices for water, but when your only option is a $6... More
