Even non horse people should enjoy. The museums include the use if the horse they history, and you can spend HOURS inside. The outdoor grounds are gorgeous, the performances are nice, and rotate performers. Trail ride for three is about 100$. Admission varies. Prepare for a multiple mile walk to take in the entire park. If in the area- you can visit Man 'O War's grave, statue and story. Also just before the admission pay stand, is a bronze of Secretariat. Also, near Secretariat's bronze is a sign explaining the stone fencing you see all over the area. Horse farm tours usually include the new Calumet, and visiting the grave of Alydar. Farm tours are about 30$ each. Horse people, this is a bucket list item. Non horse people usually find it entertaining enough.

This is an "experience" not to miss. The falls are spectacular, and you'll get a work out too. No entrance fee. Beware copperheads if you venture on the rocks or deadfall. Wear good shoes ( not sandals!!!) and prepare for uneven stairways and a lot of walking to see the upper, lower and beach area. If planning a trip- try for full moon dates, you might get to see a very rare "moonbow".

Worth the trip, if nearby. The sinkhole and crushed cars made it even cooler. Otherwise, not really much to see. Disappointed in that. Did not see nearly as many cars on display as expected. The exhibit on frame assembly was neat. 2adults, two teens, and an 8 yo = 25$ family admission.

Kept two adults, two surly teenagers and an 8yo occupied for an entire day. Rode the simulators multiple times, staff was exceptional. Exhibits were awe inspiring. Bring a picnic lunch, and it's a very perfect road trip destination. By the end of the day every one was actually sorry to leave. We could have stayed another hour, easy. The teens are even begging to go back, and to attend space camps. Tip: stop at the state welcome center for coupons. Otherwise, consider becoming a member, and getting discounts at science museums all over the country.
