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!

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.
