    At the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, your students can learn from the experts! We welcome visits from schools interested in teaching their students about the history of motorsports, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the Indianapolis 500. Education is an essential part of our mission, and we strive to share the stories behind the Speedway and the incredible lessons learned both on and off the track. 

    During school visits, your class is free to explore the Museum independently, or you can request a guided tour with one of our expert hosts. Students can also sign up for a tour of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where they can take a lap around the oval and even kiss the bricks. So, get ready for an unforgettable field trip to the Racing Capital of the World! 

    Teachers and educators are welcome to contact or call 317-492-6747 for help scheduling a visit. 


    The Indianapolis 500 is the Greatest Spectacle in Racing—and a perfect learning opportunity! We encourage educators across the country to use the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum and the Month of May as a teaching tool, demonstrating the power of innovation, ambition, and determination. 

    The lesson plans and resources below are designed to get your students excited about their visit to the Museum and enhance their experience here. These resources can also be used as supplemental materials for Indiana history lessons, science and engineering classes, and teaching new race fans about the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

    All materials are owned by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. They may be used by individuals, schools, and libraries for study, research, or classroom teaching without permission.
