  • It's a great museum with a ton of interactive activities. People have this misconception that you must be an avid NASCAR fan to enjoy this museum but that's not true. Most people spend an hour and half going through the museum. Here are my suggestions : -If you plan on doing the simulator ride, get one of the unlimited combos -Use your hard card; it's a souvenir but you can use it to get information that compliments the exhibits. -Watch the movie- especially if you have no previous knowledge of NASCAR -Go to Qualifying before trying the actual simulator or 9/10 you are going to crash as soon as you start. -If you don't do anything else make sure you indulge in the Glory Road to see the classic and historic cars. You also feel how the embankment feels for driver. Now imagine going 150 mph!?
  • I was staying at a hotel just across the street from the NASCAR Hall of Fame and could see it from my window, so when I was done with work for the week...I had to visit. The place was empty when I visited, most likely because it was the middle of the day and not Spring Break or any other busy tourist season. Based on this, I expected the staff to be more helpful and attentive. Literally the only staff member who spoke with me on my 2.5 hour visit was the lady at the front who collected my money for my ticket. I saw about 20 other employees as I walked around, almost having the place to myself and they never greeted me or asked if I wanted more information about a specific collection I was looking at. The displays do have signs and I can read, but customer service goes a long way at making someone feel welcome. I was very pleased with the layout of the collections. I did not eat at the cafe inside as it was completely overpriced and expected, for a tourist location. I enjoyed all the displays, just wish the staff was a little more involved and attentive.
  • Great experience.. took my dad who used to race circle track dirt cars and my son who has never been a follower of racing. Both of them and myself had a fantastic time! Definitely worth it!!
  • I took the Racing Insiders tour and had a fantastic time! Knowledgeable and fin tour guide, the included lunch was quite good and the race shops were very interesting to visit. If you have any interest in NASCAR it's worth it!
  • Great place! Totally cool, fun interactive activities and lots of unexpected elements. Learned some new things and has a great time. Be sure to see the intro video!
