NHRA Museum

The NHRA Motorsports Museum, long a dream of NHRA founder Wally Parks, opened to the public April 4, 1998, after years of planning and months of hard work cataloging and arranging the exhibit. Housed in a 28,500-square-foot building on the edge of the historic Los Angeles County Fairplex, the NHRA Motorsports Museum echoes NHRA's mission statement to preserve, protect, and perpetuate the sport of drag racing.
The museum, presented by Automobile Club of Southern California, is open year-round, Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas), features an impressive array of vintage and historical racing vehicles –- nearly 50 at the Grand Opening -- along with photographs, trophies, helmets and driving uniforms, artifacts, paintings, and other memorabilia chronicling more than 50 years of American motorsports. A gift shop offers a wide variety of souvenir items.
The NHRA Motorsports Museum presented by Automobile Club of Southern California is located at Fairplex Gate 1, 1101 W. McKinley Avenue in Pomona. The phone number is (909) 622-2133.
