Boys and Wheels
Sep 2021
This was a family outing, with two grandparents, three grandsons between the ages of 7 and 15, and their mother. We all had a great time. I (grandma) went because the boys wanted to (I'm not a car person), and was very pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it so much! There's so much to see and do, that it couldn't be all in one visit, so someday there should be another one.

A costly but worthy experience
Sep 2021
As far as a sport museum goes, the NASCAR HOF is a top notch experience. I paid daily admission rate of $25. Lots of interactive components and tons of cars & NASCAR memorabilia that can fill quite a few hours. Definitely pay the extra $5 for the simulator experiences. Besides a limited snack bar, the only onsite food option is Buffalo Wild Wings. And not sure if it's a COVID thing - but was told I couldn't leave to get food elsewhere and come back to finish the visit. The evolution of technology in NASCAR is evident and an interesting subtext of the exhibitions. It is a pretty interesting place even if you're not a NASCAR fan. Stepping on the simulated tracks with varied degrees of banking really drove home for me, how much of an impact that has. The gift shop wasn't impressive. Lots of t-shorts, diecasts, posters, hats, but nothing creative or particularly different imho.

Must do if near Charlotte
Sep 2021
Great for NASCAR fans and others! So much history, hands on with pit challenge (fun to watch too!) and the driving simulator (get the day pass...too much fun), and the displays were easy to get engrossed in from the old history and "artifacts" to current inductees. The cars themselves were great to get close to and see the details and changes over the decades. Staff 100% helpful and friendly. Great experience for all ages and fan levels! Spent 3 hrs and felt great, but could've spent more.

A must see for all race fans
Sep 2021 • Friends
Enjoyed our day so much though we did not read everything or watch every video we still spent over 5 hours there. There is also a snack place with hotdogs, salads and the like to stop and eat. You are looking at several floors of awesome racing pictures, videos, memorabilia, etc. a must for race fans! The race car simulator and the pit road hands on challenge are very fun. Loved everything and excited to see more interactive places coming. Would return for sure!

Great NASCAR history!
Jul 2021
This place was more amazing than I thought it would be. I took the tour and would highly recommend it. Learned a lot of things that I didn't know about the drivers, the cars, the pit crews, and the racetracks. There is so much to see and do. Something for all ages is to be found there.

A NASCAR fan's MUST DO
Aug 2021
A great place to celebrate a 16 year old's birthday! We had a great time! I love NASCAR & they've done a great job preserving memories. The iRacing was fun...not as easy as you think...go to the qualifying station first to practice before jumping in the car. Buy the all day pass--you'll want to do this more than once.

Must do
Aug 2021 • Couples
I’ve been a racing fan my whole life, my wife however knows almost nothing about racing, and we both thoroughly enjoyed this visit. I loved seeing all the old cars and memorabilia. I learned a lot about the history of NASCAR. Loved seeing the white and gold #28 Texaco T- Bird. But I wish they had a Petty Super Bird.

Good times at the Hall of Fame
Aug 2021
My family didn't know much about the racing world before visiting the NASCAR Hall of Fame. We enjoyed watching the video at the beginning of the tour. We learned about the cars and the curve of the track. We learned about the frame, engine and other features of the cars. And then we got to race each other in the simulators. The employees were kind and helpful. One man, named John, spent extra time helping our son who has special needs learn how to drive the simulator. We sure appreciated his patience and positive attitude. This was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Charlotte. And now we are making plans to go to a race!

Interesting for both fans and non fans
Jul 2021
No one in my group considers themselves Nascar Fans, some enjoy watching racing from time to time, others never. The consensus was that you can't go to Charlotte and not visit this museum. Let me tell you, we all enjoyed it a lot and learned a lot. The museum is well organized and easy to follow. We really appreciated how the cars were displayed. Some were on a track, and as you wound around the track/museum, the track banks like a race track does and really lets you see what some of those curves are like. We just did the general admission tickets, passing up on bundling it with all the virtual rides you want for another $10, and a yearbook with your activities for even more. We designed a car, looked at all the exhibits and spent about 1 1/2 hours there. Well worth the time and money.

Excellent place to learn about Nascar Racing
Jul 2021
Not really a Nascar racing fan (never watched a race), I was very much surprised by the exhibits and information presented. They had real cars, simulations, a short film, and more. Its a little pricey but not more than other similar places.
