The Skinny--As one of Nascar's first super-teams, Jack Roush set the standard for doing things big. And this place IS big! Lots of buildings, lots to see, and plenty of sponsor information. A major downside, however, is that the garage is in a separate building from the museum/gift-shop, and this is where it starts to disappoint. The garage area doesn't have an adequate viewing area, and the small area that IS available is often blocked by cars that are not being worked on.

Accessibility: 3 oddly there's only a very small area to view the actual garage (which is a separate building from the museum/gift-shop). You'd think that a bigger team would have a bigger area, but it seems very cramped, and there isn't room for more than a few fans at a time. Coincidentally, I ran into Greg Biffle on my way out in 2012.
Gift Shop: 5 lots and LOTS to see and buy here, with pretty reasonable prices.
Friendliness of Staff: 4 the people in the gift shop were quite nice, though the receptionist at the garage itself was busier with other things.
Final Verdict--See it, especially for the museum.
