  • It was so much fun! My 4 year old had a blast! There are lots of cool things you can do like the simulator there are 13 cars and you get to race everyone in the other cars. Then they have the pit stop challenge that will test your time to jack a car up take a tire off and put it back on and fill it with gas. Along with lots of other fun things!! The pit stop cafe is very good too. I recommend the BBQ sandwich!
  • 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!?
  • Was a lot of fun. Got package deal #3. A lot of interactive things to do. Buying the unlimited simulator was a good deal, but would not do the headphones again. There was plenty to do, see, watch without spending the extra money on those. Spent almost 4 hours there and could have spent more.
  • Pretty good place to go visit! Even though if you don't really care about the races. They have a lot of cars, clothes, stuff. Very interesting and the people working there were also very nice.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
