    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

    Great place even for non racing fans
    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.

    Awesome building + cool experiences
    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.

    Worth visiting even for non-NASCAR fans.
    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.

    Take a peak into history, you won't regret
    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.

    Zoom into the Hall of Fame
    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.

    My husband loved it!
    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..

If you're a die hard NASCAR fan who appreciates the history, you'll likely really enjoy a visit to the hall of fame. We bought a combination package. We enjoyed the exhibits. Extremely clean, if you care to eat there the cafeteria is not overpriced and is much faster than trying to eat in Buffalo wild wings which is attached. You can wait there till you're gray-haired and probably never get a table.

We are not huge NASCAR fans, but since we don't expect to visit the area again, we thought we would visit. Casual fans like us can view the exhibits in about 2 hours, but for the more diehard fans, I would think it would take a lot longer. Everything was well identified as to who/what it was. We did not do any of the "extras" like the simulator.

Fun history! Worth the ticket price. Would get the simulator experience-it was a lot of fun, and harder than it looks. I liked reading about all the drivers. They have a lot of hands on activities.

The reviews are all correct! If you are not a fan of Nascar, just give it a try. If not only for the driving simulator experience - that we did at least seven times!

Just noting that I am not usually a big NASCAR fan, but we wanted to see this while in Charlotte. It is well done and fans will probably love it! There was a line to activate a card you get with your ticket. The wait was sort of a pain, though its goal is to make things more interactive. Good video in the theatre whether you're a fan of racing or not.

As a NASCAR fan, this place was heaven! The exhibits are top-notch, and the simulator experience was thrilling. Even my wife, who isn't into racing, enjoyed the history and interactive displays. A must-visit in Charlotte!

If you're not a NASCAR fan, you're now. Lots of artifact, cup, and the actual HOF. They have interactive thingy for the children too so you'll have lots of fun time there.

We are not Nascar fans but was told this is a must see. It was good! We enjoyed the whole experience and I can imagine a real fan would have a blast. It was rather expensive with add on anounts for different events. But we learned a lot actually and would highly recommend this museum!

I was pleasantly surprised. Went for him and really enjoyed myself. If you love or like NASCAR, this place is great! We really enjoyed the simulator. After getting the hang of it, I came in 3rd out of 13. Yay, me! Wish we had more time, but it was a pit stop on the way to the airport.
