Located at Fairplex in Pomona, a huge property that encompasses buildings and the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona dragstrip, this museum really is a must-see for racing fans. There's artifacts and vehicles all displayed beautifully; it's easy to spend hours enjoying this wonderful museum. The best time to visit - aside from making it a destination - is during the...

If you are interested in drag racing or the history of motorsports, don't miss this place. There is so many historical pieces here. The beginnings of the sport are laid out. Amazing to see things you have read about or seen old pictures of. The quality of the exhibits is top notch. Early drag racing at its best. Very happy... More

This place is the Holy Grail for those who are interested in Drag racing and hot rod history,Best time to attend is during the Nov/Feb Nhra national events especially Fiday night when they put on a Q/A session with current/past drivers,this is normally entertaining and educating..

If your into racing, this is the place to go! Lots of great displays and older cars. Loved seeing the older dragsters I remember from childhood. You can cover the museum in about 2 hours.

Love the older cars and the great tradition of racing. Many great cars on display. Many of the people you meet there know the complete history of NHRA drag racing.

Don't go to this Museum during the LA County Fair in September. We were told we would have to pay $15 Parking then we could walk through the Fair. Reluctantly we did this but after parking we found out they wanted $14 each to get into the fair to get to the museum. Unbelievable. We gave up and I will... More

Lots of cool stuff to see, I've been more than a few times and enjoy it every time. I will go back, if you go to the fair, or are just in the area it is worth a visit.

I thought the Museum was pretty good. It was smaller then I thought. I really think it would be better if they had a few more interactive items or videos to watch why you were there. Also the gift shop didn't have to much to offer. If they got better in those 2 areas I might increase the grade to... More
