If you love auto racing or just cars, you MUST visit this museum!

This is one of my favorite museums anywhere. The exhibits of historic cars, both race cars and others, is second to none. And, all of them are fully-ready to be gassed up and... read more

This is one of my favorite museums anywhere. The exhibits of historic cars, both race cars and others, is second to none. And, all of them are fully-ready to be gassed up and run! They are all in 100% road-worthy condition. Even if you've been here before, it's worth another visit, as only about 20% of their total collection is... More

We opted to take the bus ride around the track - would highly recommend doing this. You get some history of the track en- route. You stop at the brick strip and get a chance to look up and down the track. You also get a great view of the "pagoda" tower. It really changes your perspective. Then we spent... More

This is truly a must do activity if you are at interested in auto racing. It only takes a couple hours to take in everything inside the museum plus you get a bus ride around the the track. If you are there in May the 500 Festival activities include a day when you can drive your own vehicle around the... More

When we visited there was a large exhibit of antique cars which for me was the highlight of the visit. But this was a temporary exhibit. I wonder what fills up that space once these cars are gone. You do get to ride around the track on a bus and get a view of the full track and the spectator... More

The spectacle of it all. Carb day is great and especially if you are in a suite. Go for the cars, food and the people watching. Lots to see and do all around and get there earl for easier parking. Leave early as it does get crazy the longer the day!

The greatest spectacle in racing! 37 year veteran. We sit in the north vista. We are at the top. We see them coming out of turn 2 and going into turn 4. Going to one race ought to be in anyone's bucket list. It is an experience that will be in your memory forever!!

The Track has always been a place that Hoosiers spend time during the month of May. This year it was nice to see it returned to its glory years! The Indianapolis 500 is truly the greatest spectacle in Racing!
