The NASCAR Hall of Fame is a recently (May 2010) opened hall of fame dedicated to the auto racing sport of NASCAR (National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing). If you are visiting Charlotte, North Carolina this is a wonderful stop to make that will be fun for the whole family! This Instructable will give you a virtual tour of the museum while giving you tips and tricks of what to do.
Step 1: Entering
As you approach the hall of fame you will notice a gigantic metal band running across the front of the building. This band not only adds to the architectural uniqueness of the museum, but also represents the long and unique history of the sport, and also by being the same length as the backstretch of the Atlanta Motor Speedway. When you get to the ticket booths, you will see a line of people outside. Don't worry about waiting, however, because you can go inside and there is another ticket office that not as many people know about. When purchasing tickets, the best value is the combo pack ticket, which allows you to experience the entire museum while also visiting the more exclusive exhibits, such as the simulator cars in step five. You also will receive a Hard Card (step 2), a souvenir lanyard, and a map brochure. The combo pack costs $27 for adults and $20 for kids 5-12.
Step 2: Your Map And Hard Card
As stated, with the combo admission package you will get a lanyard, a map booklet, and a Hard Card. The brochure will tell you all you need to know to have a fun visit to the hall. It includes a map of the museum, ticket information, and exhibit locations. It will also give you information about your Hard Card. Your hard card will allow you to visit exclusive exhibits, take pictures, and get free food at the cafe. To use it just place the printed portion of the card in the slot, and your simulation will begin.
