  • I'm not a NASCAR fan in any way, but I enjoyed the Hall. Lot's of interesting exhibits, videos, etc. The race simulator is great fun.  more »
  • We came here with my husbands conference and we are fortunate that we were able to get in for free. It is not worth the 75 admission that it would have cost us as a family! That being said, they had s...  more »
  • Great place to visit with the family. You see several cars of Nascar, have funny activities, such as change the tire of a car Nascar and racing simulators. If you are in Charlotte, is a must.

  • 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.
  • A decent museum, but over priced. Was $100 for my family of four and we only found an hours worth of entertainment. Also I picked up a cold from touching the steering wheel inside the simulator. 99% sure I caught the virus from in there and if they wiped down the stuff that people touch with sterilizing wipes it would prevent the spread of germs. Id say a bigger NASCAR fan may have enjoyed it more but Im just a moderate fan.
  • It was a great view into the history of NASCAR. You get an up close and personal look at the sport. I really enjoyed the Toyota car exhibit. Even if you are not a fan, it's a good experience.
  • First time in Charlotte and was excited to visit the Hall! From the first sight of the building I was hooked!! Love the checkered flag crosswalks and the shape of the building. The giant Telecom gets you pumped before even entering! The front desk girls were friendly and helpful, the admission sign fees were clear and concise. Every staff member we encountered was happy and welcoming! Great customer service as a whole. The cafe girl was friendly and the food was good. As an old school fan I was a bit disappointed in the lack of Earnhardt Sr and Gordon displays but then realized it was a hall of fame and not a museum. But all in all a must see!
  • A beautiful muesuem with so much to learn. Every single detail and car is beautiful and very much unique. There are so many interactive things to do, like pit stop crew and a driving simulator. It is truly amazing!

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.
