This is a fun place to bring the family. A lot of hands on activities for the children. The adults will learn a lot from the different displays. A must to go to place when in Saratoga.

We live in the area and only go to the track once a year. But every time we have out of town guests we take them here. Horse fan or not, there is a lot here for everyone. Who hasn't heard of the great horses, and you can learn more about them in a fun, interactive way.

We took our family to this museum to familiarize them with the Sport of Kings! It was great, especially all the displays. There was a room where kids could play dress up. My 26 and 29 year old boys enjoyed that space as well!

This is a most amazing museum. From trophies to jockey's silks to paintings, trophies and videos, this is a must-see if you are even only mildly interested in horses or racing.

The Museum and Hall of Fame was a surprisingly interesting way to spend a few hours. There was a replica of a starting gate with life-like people holding the horse and standing by...great photo opportunity. The jockey's silks were displayed along with trophies from most of the big stakes races, a tote board, and many souvenirs from races going back... More
