Event Details

Indiana’s second greatest spectacle in racing! The Pinewood Derby track will be rigged and ready for action as cars zip down the 125 feet of track headed for the finish line. Launch your car from the second story start line and experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in the quest to find car perfection. Alumni derby racers can brush the dust off their own pinewood cars and new racers can fine-tune their car creations or borrow one from the museum’s line-up. Racing is open to the public, and there’ll be a Best in Show competition on the last day with adult and youth divisions.

A particular racing spectacle will occur on Monday, April 8, coinciding with the Total Solar Eclipse. Attendees are encouraged to take part in this novel and celestial-themed event.

*Please note: Indiana State Museum is closed April 1-2.
