  • Loved this place. The museum was interesting. If you're a race car buff, it would be fascinating. The guided tour of the grounds was excellent. There were cars on the track during our tour so we couldn't get on the track itself. But standing next to the track while they zoomed by was awesome.
  • I recommend anyone and everyone to visit and check out the museum.. The museum is not only very informative but also very clean and organized. Literally, from the gift shop to the racing cars and on to the timelines of various important individuals, I thoroughly enjoyed myself as I became enlightened on who made the Indianapolis Motor Speedway what it is today.. Excellent customer service. 10/10.
