If horses or racing is your thing then this is a must visit place for you. It's a trip thru harness racing years and about the oldest harness track which is still used at certain times of the year. Very interesting.

First time here and was pleasantly surprised with the displays, videos and the staff. Brought back a lot of memories of when I had my horses.

A great place to visit even if your not dedicated harness racing fan, Run by knowledgeable people, many interacting exhibit's to take part in, free admission, and even the gift shop is reasonably priced. Everything is in order and clean, they give you an impressive souvenir journal again free of charge.

Goshen is the Home of the Trotter. This museum catalogs and shows how harness racing has influenced horse racing. You have to go on the 3-D ride!!!

This is a fine museum that has interesting displays and interactive exhibits. I do not have a particular interest in horse racing, but this museum is so well done that I recommend you stop in and browse. Actual race track out back with stalls and horses in residence when we visited. Very nice gift shop.

Great introduction to the world of harness racing. The museum covers the history form it's origins to present day. Lots of memorabilia from tracks no longer in existence. Great interactive exhibits for the kids. Before or after, take a stroll over to the Historic Track.

We went here on a class trip. I had never heard of this place and was surprised it existed in Goshen. I have mixed feelings about horse racing, but still found this place to be interesting and informative. If you love horses and/or horse racing this museum is a definite must see. It has a lot of memorabilia and information... More
