We saw a sign off of I-70 on our way across country and it had a picture of a couple of greyhounds that invited us to pet them. My teens are dog crazy and it was lunch time, so we ventured into the town and when we found the museum, I was honestly amazed. It is very, very well done,... More

Well, I am not into racing,but have to say this was a good museum. I did learn several things I did not know.,the museum is well done but the highlight is getting to pet the two resident greyhounds. They are such sweet dogs! I'd recommend stopping in if you are in Abilene.

I have visited the Greyhound Hall of Fame several times when there was a "greyhound gathering" in Abilene. It was fun, as we did the tourist thing, viewing the museum and greeting the resident greyhounds. This time was a visit as any other tourist, not with the group as in past years. The museum does emphasize the racing industry. The... More

Being from an area known for horse racing, I understood the format of the museum. However, that said, a good portion of the place is geared toward the dog racing - regarding breeding, breeders, dog farms, and dog tracks. There is a section devoted to the of history of greyhounds, lots of pictures, artwork, and trophies. The big plus was... More

This is definitely geared toward the racing industry and all of the greyhounds featured were racers. There was a LOT of pedigree information, which was not of much interest to me. However, I did learn a few things, which made the stop worthwhile.

We walked in and instantly were greeted by 2 beautiful greyhounds! Gary and Jade were happy to have us there. The museum was very educational and afterwards, Gary, Jade and staff made us feel at home. What a neat place!!

Like in many towns, the employees here don't understand customer service. After driving 6 hours to reach, they insisted on closing the doors early. It was most unfortunate that this was to be the highlight of our time in Abilene. The decision to close early must have come from management as we were told, "You don't understand. If I stay,...

Who knew that greyhound racing was such a huge sport in the United States. This museum honors those gentle dogs who race for the first few years of their lives and then need loving homes. They are actually couch potatoes so they are prefect pets for the elderly and families with young children.

Have stopped by here a couple times and it is a great museum (and unbelievably free). There are a couple resident Greyhounds that you can pet after you take a walk through the museum. There is a lot of history and art related to the dogs, as well as the actual hall of fame. Even though I have no experience... More
