The museum is right across the street from the Eisenhower Museum. I did not even realized it was there the previous year when I visited the Eisenhower Museum. It does not look very big from outside. We dropped in because it was just across the street from our destination, but were quite surprised at how extensive the museum really is.... More

Pleasant surprise in Abilene. Well done museum with history of the Greyhound breed as well as Greyhound racing. Love that two retired Greyhound dogs greet you at the door. Museum is clean, well designed, informative and a nice place to visit. The museum does not charge admission but does accept donations. It is not a huge facility so it doesn't... More

Kind of interesting. Took an 8 year old there. She stayed mostly interested. There was a greyhound there that she could pet ad she loved that. How much you like it kind of depends on your feelings about racing greyhounds.

Nice place for viewing what greyhounds have been through in the past years. Not hard to find, and worth the visit if for nothing more than to pet the puppies (dogs) and relieve stress of travel, lower blood pressure, etc.

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.
