Cool and informative

I'm not sure if it's worth the $10 you pay to get in, but it's a cool place to visit, It took us about an hour or so to get through it.

If you go to the Indy 500, this is a must see. So many cool cars. I got to fit into an old Indy race car they had there for the public. Boy, it was a tight fit. And, I'm not a big person. I do feel, this would be enjoyed by whomever goes there. I certainly did.

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
