Home to the Indianapolis 500 and the city's Grand Prix, Indianapolis Motor Speedway is also known for its dedication to automotive and motorsports history. The speedway is famous for hosting some of the world's biggest races, and therefore the world's best drivers, since it was established in 1909. With the ability to hold up to 400,000 guests, it is the highest-capacity sports arena in the world. If you're in town for a race, or are just interested in learning more about racing, be sure to stop into the Hall of Fame Museum. The museum was founded in 1956 and was named a National Historic Landmark in 1987. Here you'll discover more than 75 cars, along with historical racing and automotive accessories and paraphernalia.

  • The Greatest Spectacle in racing! You have to see this once in your lifetime. Seeing it on TV does not do it justice. 
  • Yeah it's the brick yard fun place to skateboard. The tracks slant is impressive the Sherri speeds to hold that car in thoes corners judging buy the angle of the track is runs a car on it lol no I don't have the experience and this track is difficult and long didn't Greg weld race at this track one time my father worked for the man . I can run a outlaw sprint car the brick yard takes skill I guess that's why he owned weld racing .
  • I wasn't here for a race, so I can't give it the stars it may deserve. However, just being there, seeing a part of history, was very cool. 6 Ingress Portals, 4 Pokestops, and 2 Pok√©mon gyms nearby.
  • Took the tour and visited the museum. Not really a big fan of car racing and all of that, but was actually very pleased and entertained by the guide and the small museum with all the old cars! Great thing to do while in Indianapolis! I guess really a must in a city know for the indy500 and the brickrace, very informative.
  • Great experience for the 2013 brickyard 400. Although it was a boring no caution race, I had fun. Staff did their job well. A+.
  • The review is about the museum at the speedway. If you need to see old racecars and little else, this is the place for you. For everybody else that may or may not be a car enthusiast and may or may not have kids that want to visit the speedway, you'll probably be bored. It's 2 rooms containing old race cars that are roped off so you can't get too close. That's it... oh and old guys standing around making sure you don't get too close.
