“Must see for race fans!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

I took the track tour and spend hours in the museum. The historical collection inside the museum is very impressive and comprehensive. The track tour was great, and the tour staff were very friendly and accomodating taking photos of us on the bricks, showing us behind the scene areas and answering questions. The price was a good value, too.

Great time and must take a ride in the car!!! Nice bucket list adventure!!! Cars and motorcycles to view, movie to watch and chocked full of history. Girls, you will earn purse points if you surprise your hubby with a trip to the museum and a car ride around the track. Great weekend event. We ate at Famous Dave's and stayed at a Hampton. Very nice weekend!!!

“Greatest spectacle on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

A must-see for any car racing fan. In my opinion, the greatest car race on Earth. Not as thrilling as it once was, but still great fun. The museum is also very good and a must-see while there. A race-car driver from the present or past could appear at any time...Some/all of those old race cars are sill maintained thoroly and ready to be driven on the track.

“This tour is a blast!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We took the full tour of the facility and toured the museum...it is worth the price! We got to go all around the track in the bus, they then took us on the full tour of the media center, the garages, and we got to kiss the bricks! We attended the Brickyard 400 and it added to the tour!

“Great collection of Indy cars!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

Went for a weekend getaway and visited the speedway and the museum. They have a lot of collection of gorgeous Indy cars. We also took the tour on the speedway track and since it was late in the day, we were the last ones and actually had a private tour in the tour bus which was great!
