A great place in Indiana to take out of town guests, especially if they are car and/or racing enthusiasts. The museum isn't the biggest, but a perfect size to make a fun morning or afternoon and partner with a good meal nearby.

Great Museum - fun for all. Racing is fun, but you must remember this is not a small track and you will not see everything like at a small track. Stands are hot partially because they are have closed in bottoms and does not allow airflow. Pack a cool hat, plenty of sunscreen and cold drinks. We always pack some moistened handkercheifs or hand towels in zip bags and add them to our cooler - they really help. Like any outdoor event - plan for everything. Have fun!

My husband and I went to the Brickyard 400 for the first time this year and will be making return visits in the years to come. We had a great time and the sounds of the cars coming off turn 4 are something to experience. Lots of sunscreen is needed here and drink plenty of water it gets hot!

Growing up going to dirt track races and listening to the 500 on the radio, this is a must see for any visitor to Indianapolis. IT also showcases how racing actually helps with R & D in the auto industry, while allowing the visitor to walk down memory lane. The video presentation is a must-see and the lap around the track is really a necessity to grasp how fast the cars are! Enjoy!
