Situated inside the track we find this relatively new museum which is filled with one fantastic race car after the other. It is light and spacious and the cars grouped in an interesting fashion. The gift shop is well stocked but rather expensive.

We had a wonderful time at the 500 kids club party. We met Santa and Mrs. Claus. We also got to ride around the track to see the Christmas lights.

This is a great venue for Indy Car racing. I wouldn't suggest it for nascar though. The track allows for the cars to get to spread out. I have also seen Grand Prix racing here.

Hands-down one of the most interesting and well-worth-the-trip experiences I have ever been able to take part in. The weather on the day I came was absolutely abysmal, with 60 degrees of wet and depressing weather but this museum and the speedway around it turned...More

What a fantastic holiday display. There was a brief wait to get in but it was well worth it. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to drive through the whole production including some time driving on the actual track and crossing the yard of...More

This most unusual race was very entertaining. The pilots must be nuts to fly that close to the ground and with all the turning and precision it must be exhausting. Spent the entire day watching in amazement! the teen grandkids loved this event. Toured the...More

You can go in the Speedway and the gift shop without paying, but you must pay for the tour around the track and the Museum. It's not really that expensive.
