This museum shows the history of the greyhound and all about greyhound racing.it even has a friendly hound to pet. It explains how humanely they treat and train the animals. No admission, donations only.

We learned about breeding dogs and greyhound racing. It was fun to pet the greyhound. It was layed out well...although we were not really familiar with the top breeders or bloodlines. Its a pleasant, nice, and different venue.

We went here only because it was recommended in all the tour books. We had no interest in greyhound racing but the resident dogs did great us and were cute. I’m sure if you had an interest in dog racing you would love the museum...More

I mostly wanted to go to pet the greyhounds. Ginger and Gary, both retired dogs, were the greeters. They were very friendly and liked to be petted. The Hall of Fame itself did not interest me that much and did not have a lot in...More
