We actually got to pet a live greyhound! What a sweetie. It was interesting looking around the museum. Somewhat of a step back in time. Interesting .

The Hall of Fame provides not only the dogs that made a name for themselves. It gives the history of the line - where it came from, what breeds were mixed to obtain the dog we know today. I throroughly enjoyed the knowledge I obtained going through the museum. It truly takes a couple hours to see and hear all... More

We decided to stop on our way back to Colorado. It was very interesting and informative. And how can you not like a place with two awesome retired Greyhounds that meet you at the door? The dogs were very sweet and the volunteers were very knowledgable and friendly. We'll worth a stop.

Lots of great history - wish they had an equal emphasis on coursing as they do racing. Love the gold collars & the original rail machine. Nice little gift shop. Greyhound ambassadors are lovely!

This was a racing museum. Don't expect anything else. It's about greyhound racing and pretty much all about the dogs and the trainers. The dogs are walking around in the museum and greet you at the door. They are well behaved and won't jump on you! Don't expect anything else. What they do is excellent.

Okay, I don't care two sticks about dog racing, but this place was really boring. It didn't make me any more interested than I was.

When I first walked in the dogs (I think one of their names was Jade) came right up to us. Walked around a bit and saw all of the neat trophies and art but had to leave soon to get on the road for home. Enjoyed the quick visit very much.

I enjoyed the staff and the dogs. The place was very clean and very informative. The torphies and awards that were on display were magificent. The walk through the halls was very informative to America's past.

Right across the street from the Eisenhower Library, this is worth seeing. They were setting up for an event that evening so Gary and Jade were being kept in the front office but you could still pet them over their little fence, great dogs! There is a lot to see in the museum and it's easily laid out. We are... More

We stopped at the Greyhound Hall of Fame on a whim, just to see what it is. What a pleasant surprise! After being greeted at the door by two real, live retired greyhounds, we found the rest of the museum to be very informative. If you have ever enjoyed ancient artworks, after visiting this museum you will be able to... More
