The crown jewel of American motorsports is coming to Heritage Museums & Gardens! Since 1911, the Indy 500—a 200-lap, 500-mile endurance race—has captivated fans and created race car legends. Opening on April 14, 2018, The Indy 500 exhibit at Heritage displays some of the most renowned cars from this high-octane event. Twenty iconic Indy 500 race and pace cars will be on display—from the 1914 Duesenberg driven by Eddie Rickenbacker to the 2016 NAPA winner driven by Alexander Rossi. The exhibit captures all the excitement of the Indy 500, with photos and videos from the races, race equipment worn by the winners, memorabilia, and the sights and sounds of the race. Visitors even have the chance to sit in an Indy “Touch Car,” as well as enjoy a number of programs and events related to the exhibit.
