We enjoyed a couple of hours learning all about hot rods in Southern California. Even though my husband is really into those kind of things I personally found it really interesting also

A very nice, small historical NHRA museum. Worth the stop and won’t take much of your time. I got the impression that if you are going to the raceway, this is a must stop. Great displays, convenient parking.

A 'must see' for anyone who is interested in racing cars and the history of drag racing. It's a large (30,000 square foot) well appointed museum loaded with retired racing cars, motorcycles and things close to a racing fan's heart.

This museum provides a great history of drag racing with cars from every era and most classes. This museum is right up there with the Daytona and Indy museums.
