  • Well worth a visit - and the entrance to this museum of race cars & the NC Hall of Fame is FREE!!! Incredible race cars on display, incredible music albums on display. Detailed info on CURB car racing and music recordings. This place is not only massive, it's packed with so much to see. Everyone working there is extremely nice and helpful. If you're in town, make sure to do by!
  • This is a must see museum for any music or racing lover. The exhibits are well designed and aesthetically pleasing. If you want to get the most from your visit, you'll need to scan the QR code to learn more about the artists. I wish there was a button to press to hear audio of their songs, but the collection of artifacts is lovely. The museum is free (accepts donations). It has odd hours, so make sure to plan your visit.
  • Its amazing. My family & I had a great time.
  • Very cool place! Hidden gem in Kannapolis!
  • Bob Bartels Your review will be posted publicly on the web. Learn more What a great place to visit. Not huge but well laid out and stocked with great memorabilia. The motor sports museum is on one side and the music museum is on the other side. Both are free admission but have separate donation containers. Super clean, super friendly. Push button for admission. My son the guitar player went crazy for an early rare fiberglass guitar and other items. Local N.C. musicians are featured from all genres. Lots of Mike Curb Records memorabilia. The motor sports side is stocked with vintage indy cars, sprints, stock cars and even Tim Grose's vintage corvette funny car. Well worth the trip. Close to Nascar race shops.
