NASCAR Hall of Fame
I was staying at a hotel just across the street from the NASCAR Hall of Fame and could see it from my window, so when I was done with work for the week...I had to visit. The place was empty when I visited, most likely because it was the middle of the day and not Spring Break or any other busy tourist season. Based on this, I expected the staff to be more helpful and attentive. Literally the only staff member who spoke with me on my 2.5 hour visit was the lady at the front who collected my money for my ticket. I saw about 20 other employees as I walked around, almost having the place to myself and they never greeted me or asked if I wanted more information about a specific collection I was looking at. The displays do have signs and I can read, but customer service goes a long way at making someone feel welcome. I was very pleased with the layout of the collections. I did not eat at the cafe inside as it was completely overpriced and expected, for a tourist location. I enjoyed all the displays, just wish the staff was a little more involved and attentive.
OH! GO! I am a 60+ year old woman and traveled solo cross-country to tour the NASCAR Hall of Fame. I was not disappointed. They had me from the first staff member I encountered and certainly from the introductory movie. I was teary at the history and excited by the WOW exhibits. The first floor banked Glory Road is jaw-dropping and I had many smiles at the very clever Cars 3 Exhibit. And thanks for all the rocking chairs and benches to sit when needed! What touched me the most? Life sized figures of several key racing figures who started it all. It was like I could walk into the conversation between Bill France, Smokey and others. What a cool way to do that exhibit. Can you tell I'm impressed? You will be too.

What an awesome place! If you want to know anything about the history of NASCAR this is the place to be. Beautifully preserved memorabilia that spans 1948 - present. All the staff is super friendly and we really enjoyed our trip and can't wait to come back. As the collection grows this place will always require a visit annually.
A fantastic experience for all ages. The cleanliness and friendliness of staff made this an highly enjoyable experience. Everything relating to NASCAR is explained and shown from the history to how a NASCAR team works. You can also try out the NASCAR simulators which is an awesome experience. It is easy to spend 3-4 hours here.
Fun hands on Museum. Lots to see and interact with. It is a very wide open area with a lot to take in. Take your time here or you may miss something. The second floor has a full size NASCAR trailer to explore and parts from the cars with well lit areas.
