Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum

The Museum is closed for renovations, but you can still take a tour of the track!

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is undergoing a major renovation and will be closed until April 2025. For the latest information on the renovation plans, please visit the Museum's official website.

Tours are available every day of the year except Thanksgiving and Christmas, offering a variety of track and “behind the scenes” tours, depending on weather and track availability.

Guests can check in for tours at the Pepsi building to the west of the Museum. The building also houses the Indianapolis Motor Speedway gift shop, which is open 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. seven days a week except for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

In addition to the Museum’s website, news and information is available at (317) 492-6784, or on the Museum’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages.

The IMS Museum is operated by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Foundation, a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) entity, which relies on individual memberships, sponsor partners and philanthropic donations for much of its operating budget.

Kiss the Bricks Tour & View From the Top Tour

Take a lap around the famed 2.5-mile oval with our “Kiss the Bricks” tour, a 30-minute narrated tour with a stop at the start/finish line so you have an opportunity to do what race winners have done since 1996: kiss the 1909-vintage paving bricks that once comprised the entire racing surface.

The “View From the Top” tour includes a 30-minute guided tour of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with stops at Victory Podium and the iconic Pagoda. After visiting Victory Lane, you’ll travel to the top of the 153-foot-tall Pagoda for a breathtaking view of the Speedway and the surrounding downtown skyline.
