Definitely worth stopping and taking the walking tour and visiting the museum! Even if you have never seen the race, this is an interesting stop. Quite a tradition for 145 years! And so fun to learn about it!

This museum was amazing!

It was very interactive. It even had opportunities where you could race a virtual horse, or try on jockey gear.

I've been a life long fan of horse racing, so of course I enjoyed it. But I think everyone could learn something here.

Tour was fantastic and gets you a great up close and personal view of what it might be like on Derby Day. Includes museum entrance and a really cool movie depicting Race day. I'd highly recommend it!

This place is amazing! We didn’t get to stay long as we had to get on the road, and the price was a bit steep, but totally worth seeing! Man-O-War’s tomb at the entrance was worth the stop alone!
