We were among the few patrons present on the morning we visited. The excellent displays kept our attention. Seeing the history of horse racing, its many changes over the years, and the people involved made the experience great.

My family of 4 enjoyed this museum even though we don't know anything about racing. We wanted to get some idea of the culture of the area. Interesting exhibits. Well designed. My son found the old race videos interesting. Lots of information well displayed.
