IMS museum open again

You’ll soon be able to see the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and take a tour around the track once again.


The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is re-opening this Friday, January 8. It has been shut down in November due to the increase in COVID numbers.


The IMS Museum will operate under its normal winter hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but at 25% capacity and with the same safety guidelines that were in place last year. On March 1, their hours will extend to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Their new “The Basement in 30” and “Kiss the Bricks” tours will resume Friday. You’ll also be able to check out their current exhibits, “From the Vault” and “Granatelli: Larger Than Life.”


The IMS Museum says walk-ins are welcome, but because of the capacity limit, you’re encouraged to call ahead to schedule a visit. When you arrive, you’ll be required to fill out a brief health screen, get your temperate checked, and wear a mask while inside the museum and on track tours.
