7. HorsePlay! Gallery

Make your child’s birthday an extraordinary one with an exclusive party room in the HorsePlay! Gallery at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame!​ Among the highlights of this interactive gallery is a barn with a hayloft, a rubber floor featuring both the hoofprints of a thoroughbred and footprints of a jockey, and many expanded hands-on exhibits. Children can groom a life-sized horse, explore the many different shoes a thoroughbred may wear, dress in jockey attire and investigate objects related to the many careers associated with horse racing.


 *Please note the HorsePlay! Gallery will not be available for rentals January 1, 2020 through July of 2020 due major renovation to the Hall of Fame Gallery.   For more information, please click here
