The interactive exhibit created by the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, takes a behind-the-scenes look into the world of auto racing and coincides with the 50th anniversary of Hot Wheels. The exhibit opened to the general public Saturday, Jan. 27 and runs through April 29.

“We knew kids love Hot Wheels, and Mattel was interested in doing a project with us that could be a traveler instead of just a [temporary exhibit] at our place. To distinguish it from the prior exhibit, and to make the content more broadly interesting to both children’s museums and science centers, we decided to develop it around the science and physics of motorsports, using Hot Wheels cars to illustrate the content.”
