Indianapolis, IN — Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum officials announced Wednesday that the museum will reopen to the public at 10 a.m. (ET) Friday, Jan. 8, at 25% capacity and following the same COVID-19 guidelines that were in place in summer and fall 2020.

The museum closed Nov. 9 due to the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in Indiana at that time. As of Jan. 8, the Museum will operate under its normal winter hours of 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily.

The museum’s new “Basement in 30” and “Kiss the Bricks” track tours will also resume Jan. 8. Walk-ins are always welcome, but museum tour managers encourage visitors to call ahead for availability.

Other current exhibits include “From the Vault,” presented by Bank of America, and “Granatelli: Larger Than Life,” presented by O’Donovan & McCardel Wealth Management of Raymond James. “From the Vault,” refreshed in fall 2020, features many of the rarest treasures from the museum’s collection. It’s open until April 18, while the Granatelli exhibit is open until June 20.

Barring unforeseen circumstances related to the pandemic, the museum will transition to its spring/summer hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily on March 1.
