Finally got to go after many years thinking about it. Started the day with a tour of the track with a guide and my wife and I had our own opportunity to "Kiss the bricks". Back in the museum I viewed many of the famous cars I saw race as a kid. Such great memories and so glad these cars... More

The IMS Museum has undergone a total change. While it was awesome in the past to see all the historic cars, they have really made a lot of great changes. They enlarged the display area, they have special displays that change throughout the year. The Penske display was phenomenal and now, that is followed by a cars of Indiana display... More

What can I say? Even if you are not a race fan, it's a must see place. You get to see first hand what a 2 1/2 miles track looks like. They have a nice museum and gift shop as well.

The area this is in is quite dangerous, so do not stay in this area when you visit, yes it is a great race track and I would tell every adult to visit but do not take your small children.

It is very interesting to see the evolution of the Indy car over the more than 100 years they have been racing here. I never appreciated the risks and physical... More

If you have any love of automobile racing or just like to see how technology has evolved over the decades, then the IMS Museum is a must stop. You can almost feel the echoes of history while strolling among the cars. From Ray Harroun's Marmon Wasp, winner of the 1st 500, to today's current Dallara's the museum is filled with... More

It was a very nice experience. We got to do the tour at the speedway and we kissed the bricks!!! Quite cool. The tour guide had much knowledge and it showed how passionate he is of the venue. The museum has amazing and beautiful cars. It was really cool to be there.

If you are a car lover, you must visit this place, so many old cars are there in exhibition, also you can see race cars. Photo clicking facility is also there in one of the race car. this was really good experience.
