  • My wife and I took our two sons here, mainly because of our oldest son's ( age 7 ) almost lifelong love and admiration of the sport. I myself remember watching many a race after getting home from church. But I digress.. We weren't exactly sure what to expect from our visit to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, but believe me when I say that it quite literally AMAZED US. We spent hours absorbing the brilliantly displayed cars, equipment, and the huge assortment of historical memorabilia and records. There is so much to do and to see, that I wish we had allotted more time to stay. If you have been trying to decide whether or not you should go, trust me, GO!
  • 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.
  • Visited in February. This is overpriced and particularly when you also get to pay extra for parking. Unless you do the interactive activities, some have an extra charge also, there is not much to do. There is a short movie, cars on display and some reading panels. I have been to other sports halls of fame that were way more captivating. They made you feel part of that sports history as if you had lived it. This Nascar Hall of Fame is more like a car museum combined with car arcade activities.
  • As a wife of a NASCAR fan, I was truly unprepared to find this interesting and educational. The displays are well done and there was an excellent mix of visual, audio and interactive displays and activities. We did the race simulation three times, three more than I thought I would do! It was a fun day.
  • Great exhibits with lots of history. A little spendy but the information and memorabilia in this building is well worth it. We enjoyed the interaction exhibits and would recommend spending the extra $5 to get the audio headphones. We hurried ourselves a little bit but was still there 4 1/2 hours. The only thing that hurts this facility is the ungodly cost of the parking garage. Plan on spending $20 to park.
