A very neat place to visit for some great history about the greyhound industry. Interactive displays...and you can pet a real greyhound. Located right across the street from the Eisenhower Museum.

Museum is large, well appointed with lots of information presented. You'll be greeted immediately by two retired racers and pleasant staff. There's a small gift shop as well. Number of stars would be higher if I could ethically support the sport of greyhound racing -...More
