Through the education programs at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, we strive to tell the stories of the incredible innovations, people, and lessons learned on and off the track. As the IMS Museum moves forward with new exhibits featuring one-of-a-kind objects from our collection, education becomes more essential and accessible. We have provided several resources below to help you learn more about the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indianapolis 500.

The “May Kids/Mary’s Kids” programming was ceased in 2020 due to COVID-19. It has not been reinstated for 2022. We will reevaluate this decision on an annual basis.

Museum general admission is available. Plan Your Visit – Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum
Please note that IMS practice day tickets (more information) do not include admission to the Museum, as we are separate operating entities.
