My most vivid memory of this facility is being able to sit in an actual car and view from the seat of the driver. It's a realization of how low you are and the view you have from their position Staggering!

We probably visit the speedway once per year. The museum is well done. Make sure to catch the movie. And don't forget to go upstairs and check out the photo library. Very informative and helpful staff. Ask for the AAA discount. Take the bus tour. There wasn't a grounds tour on the day we were there, but we will be back.

While I am really not into racing, I really enjoyed the museum. It is so interesting to view the cars and take a step back into history and see how racing has changed. All ages and genders will enjoy it. Give youself a couple of hours at least!

Was taken here a few years ago on a business trip to Indiana.
I was amazed at the low cost compared to what a similar attraction back in the UK would have been.
Went for a trip in a mini bus for a circuit of the Indie 500 Track. Then spent enjoyable time in the museum. Was amazed at the size of the collection & the standard of the information. Well worth a visit. Had to put incorrect date in the Trip advisor visit box on this site as it was 5 years ago.
