SCHOOL TOURS

The Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum is a wonderful resource for bringing classroom exhibits alive! Our Exhibits provide a fascinating story of the far-reaching changes motorsports and hot rodding has provided modern society. From humble beginnings to today’s top dollar drags, from a hobby sport to mainstream professional drag shows; motorsports and designers/drivers/engineers has changed our everyday practices.

 

GROUP TOURS

Tours are available year round Wednesday through Sunday from 10AM to 5PM. Groups of 10 or more are eligible for discount admission rates. Tours can range from 45 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes. Each tour includes a guided tour of current exhibits, an in depth look at our permanent collection, and the history behind the museum. We also offer a self-guided scavenger hunt. 

Tours can be custom tailored to the specific interests of your group, call (909) 622-2133 to book your visit today.

 

L.A. FAIRKIDS PROGRAM

Each year the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum partners with the Los Angeles County FairKids Discovery Club Field Trips to bring thousands of students to explore the Fair. The FairKids Field Trips program is a California State standards-based field trip. It is for preschool through 8th grade students, public, private and home schools, and admission is absolutely free of charge. The field trip gives FairKids three hours on the grounds without the public.

MOPAR ROAD READY POWERED BY DODGE

For the third consecutive year, the Mopar and Dodge brands will partner up to help teach teens critical skills and strategies for staying safe and smart behind the wheel. The new “Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge” teen safe-driving program schedule was announced last week at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals drag race at Bandimere Speedway.

 

Over the first two years of the “Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge” program, nearly 2,700 teens and their parents have participated in the complimentary classes, learning safe and defensive-driving techniques.

 

“Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge” is aided by a collaboration with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Motorsports Museum and B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe), two nationally recognized non-profit 501(c)3 organizations that share similar missions of promoting the importance of safe and responsible driving.

 

The advanced driving program, designed to teach safe and defensive driving techniques, is available to teens between the ages of 15-19 with a learner’s permit or driver’s license and at least 30 hours of driving experience. Participants will benefit from a proven curriculum and skilled high-caliber instructors provided by the B.R.A.K.E.S. organization. It incorporates both classroom education and hands-on training with a 3:1 student-to-instructor ratio, allowing for quality time with each teen.
 
Each teen driver’s participation in the training program will include a companion experience for a parent or adult guardian who also will actively take part. “Mopar Road Ready Powered by Dodge” sessions provide a brief classroom review of core driving topics, including proper seat positioning, hand positioning and basic vehicle dynamics. Advanced behind-the-wheel training will then be provided to teens with on-track course sessions, including accident avoidance (slalom), distraction, panic stop, wheel drop and wet skid pad.
