Introducing ‘The Basement in 30’ Tour

Check out the treasures in the IMS Museum Basement! Reservations & info:

The Basement level of the IMS Museum took on a mythical reputation for 40 years, and deservedly so. It’s a repository of rare and one-of-a-kind racing and automotive artifacts and vehicles, ranging from pre-war motorcycles and Indiana-built automobiles, to Indy 500 Pace Cars and winning sports cars, to modern-era Indy cars.

Only VIPs were granted access to The Basement for four decades, but  today, you can enjoy an exclusive 30-minute tour of the Museum’s underground auto storage.
