I'm not a fan of dog racing, but the retired greyhound that is a greeter was very sweet and happy to see us. It was amazing to me all the places that have races and the trophies.

The little ones might get a bit bored, though the 2 retired greyhounds (ambassadors) are sweet and gentle, seeking love from anyone, any size. We found this museum very informative, even for people who don't have a clue about dog racing. The atmosphere is quiet, cool (a great respite from the heat), FREE -donation box- and well presented.

Wasn't sure what to expect out of this. If you at least like dogs it's worth the stop. We were greeted by the 2 resident greyhounds. Lots of good info. Good for 45 minutes to an hour.

A must-stop museum for any dog lover! It's not very big, but it's a very informative little place for people who have an interest in racing or just dogs in general. If you're lucky, you might get to meet some of the resident greyhounds!

Admission is free so if you are not impressed, you are not out any money. Friendly staff included 2 greyhounds who would like to greet you if it is okay with you. We have never been to a greyhound race so it was educational for us.

The Greyhound Hall of Fame is an interesting stop that is near the Eisenhower center. While the exhibits were interesting the highlight for us was being able to pet the retired greyhounds that have the run of the museum. Great staff and a fun place to stop.

The museum has an impressive display and history about greyhound dogs (this is not about the Greyhound bus!) and dog racing. The day I visited there were 3 Greyhound dogs there and one came running out to greet me - very friendly and lovable! Also the museum is free although donations are appreciated.
