For the first time in four decades, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, the home of the Racing Capital of the World’s 114 years of history, will close its doors for nearly 18 months as it undergoes an $89 million transformational renovation.

When it reopens in April 2025, weeks ahead of the 109th running of the Indianapolis 500, visitors will be greeted with a brand-new elevated mezzanine space overlooking its gallery of winning cars, featuring 6,700 new square feet of exhibition space, experience a brand-new STEAM learning center featuring a racing simulator and tools equipped to put fans through a pitstop competition and an immersive exhibit that will leave guests with the thrill of cars zooming past at 240 mph and the smell of exhaust and burnt rubber in their nostrils.
