The Hall of Fame Museum is among a group of 12 leading Indianapolis-area attractions offering free admission to the public for one day in the holiday promotion presented by Indianapolis Downtown, Inc.

Foyt’s four Indianapolis 500-winning cars and many other significant historic vehicles from a variety of racing series and automotive eras.
