Our friends joined us for a trip to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum this summer and we learned a lot. So many kids are interested in cars and all things “wheels”. Lulu included. If it doesn’t have wheels it doesn’t matter, she still scoots it across the floor in the same manner that she races her toy bus and dump truck around the room and down the hallway.
Children under 6 receive free admission, children 6 – 15 pay $5 each and adults (age 16 and up) pay $10 to see more than 75 different race cars from many of the 100 years of racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Families can pose for a photograph IN a race car. Moms, MY favorite thing was seeing the Tiffany & Co. race trophies! Gorgeous! Put it on a chain and I’d wear one of those around my neck!
There’s a 20 minute video for your viewing pleasure AND TWO gift shops in case you want to grab some Indianapolis or IMS gear to sport wherever you go. Take your kids for a lap around the track for a qualifying lap on an IMS bus that is narrated. Additional fees apply; $8 for age 16 and up, $5 for age 6-15 and $2 for age 5 and under.
The museum is open every day except for Thanksgiving & Christmas from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. March through October and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. from November through February.
