A few weeks ago I went to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum. I never thought I’d got to the museum, but once I got there I had a surprisingly good time. Admission was inexpensive, only $5, and for those with kids out there, children under 6 get in free and kids 6-15 get in for just $3. Honestly, the whole time I was there all I could think of was “I wish I had gone to elementary school in Indianapolis as a kid because this would be a fun place to go see on a field trip.”
So if you have children with any interest in racing or cars, you have got to take them to this museum. Especially if you live in Indianapolis or nearby, it’s a cheap trip all around and any adult will enjoy seeing some of the classic Indy cars and how racing has evolved over the past century of racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The reason I went to the museum in the first place was because my dad is a huge NASCAR and Indy 500 fan and I told him that I had never been to the speedway even though I have lived in Indianapolis for three years. He told me I had to go, if not for the actual Indy 500 or Brickyard 400, at least go just to see what the speedway’s all about. So for once I am actually glad I listened to my dad and took his advice. I got to see some cool cars and learn a bit about the IMS and the largest single-day sporting event in the world (the Indy 500).
