On a recent trip especially to see this historical race course, we were not disappointed. The museum is next door to Churchhill Downs and tours are available of the track with the general admission. The museum was very interesting as well as the movie provided. The museum highlights all the winners of the Derby including famous jockeys, owners, and other items/stories of horse racing history associated with Churchhill Downs.
We would have spent more time at the race track with our tour guide but the weather was cold and rainy that particular day. We did learn that people buy their tickets for the next Derby a year in advance.
This was definitely a worthwhile visit for a great family outing.
