“Great place to take out of town guests”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

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”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

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!

“Brickyard 400 was Amazing!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

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!

“Family vacation and a trip down memory lane”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

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!
