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

Had a very nice visit here -we were greeted by the 2 resident retired greyhounds who call the museum home. A short movie explains the history of racing here in U.S.-then time to browse the museum. Make sure To drop some $$ in the donation box so they can continue to keep this place open.

My mom and I stopped at the Greyhound Hall of Fame on our way to Colorado. We had read wonderful reviews and, as greyhound lovers, were looking forward to visiting. Unfortunately, a delay in my job and major construction on I-70 caused us to get to Abilene later than anticipated and we only had 20 minutes left to explore the... More

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!
