Indianapolis Motor Speedway And Hall Of Fame Museum, Indianapolis Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful track. Had a corporate event here and enjoyed our visit. Got to ride around the track in an official pace car. Got a chance to walk around and onto the track to take some photos. Awesome experience!
The museum was great. Easy to view everything and the guides were very informative but not intrusive. If you had a question they were willing to answer. Asked us if they wanted to take pictures of us in front of a few displays. Our only complaint is the signage on how to get to the museum from the main roads on outside of the speedway.
Went there in Summer 2016 during a road trip with my children. It is a must-see on any Americana road trip. The tour of the track was nice. I enjoyed the video that retraces the history of the 'Brickyard', and naturally, seeing beautiful cars.
First of all, we are out-of-towners from Tulsa, Oklahoma. LOVED THE EXPERIENCE. If you've never been here... Go early...really early. Parking directly across the street cost us $20 and was well worth it. Do your research on the potential weather for that day & plan ahead. Do your research on what you are/aren't allowed to bring in & plan ahead. Buy seats under the awning or you might get baked if you are out in the sun during the nasty part of the day. None of the seats are padded but they more you pay for your ticket, the higher you'll sit, the more comfortable they'll be (hard plastic fold-down versus aluminum that doesn't move). Food and other vendor prices are ATROCIOUS. Smart move says to wait until AFTER the event has finished to buy any merchandise as it'll be 30-50% off and you might be able to haggle even more. The museum was pretty cool and well worth the price/time. If you've never been - put it on your bucket list. Don't forget to hit the THUMBS UP button if you found my review helpful.
Always a good time at the race track. Decided to up the ante and take the behind the scenes tour ( if I remember correctly an additional $10) for me and my family it was well worth it. Got to stand in the winners circle, see the press room, got to go to the top of the pagoda (beautiful views of down town Indy). Kiss the Brickyard and all. very nice tour. highly recomended
