    Fun experience
    We had a really fun time exploring the NASCAR hall of fame. The experience is interactive with lots of displays. The best part was the simulation race! You can also change the tires on a car to see how fast you can do it in comparison to the pros.

    Great place for a party!
    The party at the end of our conference was held here. What fun! The cars! The exhibits! The fun activities!!! The catering was also amazing! It was a great environment to mingle and catch up with old friends and get better acquainted with new ones.

    Museum for NASCAR fans
    Plenty of NASCAR memorabilia and information. Plenty of stories to hear. Somethings you should take with a grain of salt like when one of the inducties was called the last American hero. My son did iRacing and enjoyed it but was frustrated when others had crash fests or were going backwards. Cafeteria sign said fountain drinks but no drinks offered and workers in the cafeteria did not seem to fully understand what we said (language barrier)

    Not a race fan
    Despite not being a race fan, I found this place to be wildly interesting and fun. There are several hands-on opportunities as well as boundless memorabilia. The hall of fame room was beautifully done, giving you a glimpse into the driver's lives and how drivers and their teams are family

    Wow
    It's hard not to get overwhelmed by the history in this place. If you are visiting Charlotte and are a fan of Nascar, this is a must visit. I suggest you sign up for the guided tour. It's 2 hours but well worth it. I thought I was a Nascar historian but I was blown away.

    Great Visit - Designed for long term and new fans alike
    Very impressed with the design of the NASCAR HOF. A combination of videos, actual cars raced, memorabilia, simulators, and stories to read. Helpful volunteers are situated at various places. My only wish was that there were more tours available, and they were easier to join. As a novice, I would have found that very helpful. However, all in all, it was a great experience and wonderfully designed.

    Surprised how much we enjoyed this!
    Family vacation with 18 and 22 year old boys. This was a requested stop by them We went thinking this would be an okay thing to do. We're semi fans of Nascar. Well, we were surprised at how much we enjoyed the Hall of Fame. All aspects are covered - history, the people involved, the cars, the evolution of the sport, etc The interactive simulations are a must. Add them on to your ticket. We had a blast with these.

    Gentlemen start your engines!!!!!!!!!!!
    It's worth every penny!!!!!! I could not get my grandsons out of this place. They wanted to buy the simulator. They were so excited to be able to see their drives and what they had accomplished. I think the best part for them was being able to be part of the pit crew.

    Best part is the Simulator
    I’m not a race car fan but we went anyway. Lots of memorabilia, cars and interactive stations. Unfortunately, they are still creating some other stations so those were not running. Honestly driving the car racing others was the best. I was about to pass the 2nd and 3rd place drivers and someone hit me into the wall (you actually can feel that). Pretty crazy. If you buy the pass, you can drive as often as you want. It wasn’t crowded the day we went (Tuesday) but I imagine it must be really busy on the weekends. Totally worth it. If you are a race car fan, you will love this place.

    A real treat for any racing fan!
    I felt like a kid in a candy store surrounded by all the iconic cars and legendary drivers. The interactive exhibits make you feel like you're part of the action. If you're into high-speed thrills and a bit of racing history, this place is a must-visit

Get there early.. Very busy with school group the day we visited. My husband loved the simulator experience and would have spent the day in there except the school group got in line. Lots of track memorabilia, interesting bits about lots of drivers. Cool how each racetrack surface differs from each other..Fun for racing fans..

The NASCAR hall of fame is worth a visit even if you are not into car racing. It’s a great place to take kids as there is lots to see and do. You can do a simulator or try your hand at being in a pit crew. Give yourself a couple of hours to see all of the exhibits.

What an experience! We went with our 2 kids, whom are in their 20's, all but 1 of us are Nascar fans & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the other enjoyed the museum as well. To see some of the trophies and artifacts up close is near to overwhelming but respectful since there's many many factors that contribute to a driver/race team, etc...for not only a race but to the sport. We're grateful to all persons who donated/loaned and shared SO much info, details and personal driver/crew chief/track memorabilia, we could never see some of that without personally knowing the persons.
One of the kids truly enjoyed doing the iracing, thank you for having an experience he'll treasure for a very long time.

This was great. We were 4 guys from England with no particular interest in motor racing and with no knowledge of NASCAR, our only motor experience being Formula 1.

We left having had an enjoyable 3 hours and feeling like we would want to visit a NASCAR race on our next visit to the US. I guess that must mean ‘job well done’.

The exhibits were really well done. A mixture of the cars, the people, the organisation and the history. We found some of NASCAR’s history being linked to moonshine smuggling amusing.

Great for Nascar fans of any age!! Have lots of artifacts on display besides the actual HOF, plus interactive experiences. The iRacing simulator was especially fun. Not a full-fledged museum, in fact it was deceptively large in our opinion, but still worth a visit.

Cool Hall of Fame with plenty of history about NASCAR. I am not that big of a fan...but I enjoyed the museum anyway. I learned a lot about the sport.

So many interactive displays, that even a non-racing fan like me has a great time. Recommend taking the package that includes the driving simulation ($36), you’ll want to do it a few times to improve your score. I have a whole new appreciation for the drivers and crew after visiting the museum.

An unexpectedly cool place to visit. Wound up at a private dinner/cocktail event there. I'm not a NASCAR fan in the least, but absolutely appreciated the cars and the curation.
