Race Day Gallery
The Museum's new Race Day Gallery provides both a gateway to build excitement for the Hall of Fame experience and a transition for visitors following the show. Three areas of the racetrack experience are featured — The Paddock, The Track, and The Winner's Circle — introducing visitors to the essential elements of a day at the races. The Race Day Gallery also features a mural by artist Greg Montgomery and a lush soundscape that adds detail and ambiance to the experience through the use of traditional sound elements found at the track, including famous race calls.
Museum guests will also have the opportunity to call some of the sport's most famous events just like a professional announcer in a new interactive exhibit underwritten by the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust. Featuring an introduction by legendary racecaller Tom Durkin, Call the Race allows visitors to choose from four iconic races and study the original race video before making their own call. Each race is digitally recorded and can be emailed directly to the visitor so that they can relive the experience and share their call with others.
