  • What a disappointment!! Thought it would be great at the Palace house, very little open, and very expensive £8.00 for a guide book on top of £15.50 each for admission , wandered around no signage lets hope it will improve as we have purchased a yearly ticket.
  • Interesting for experts in horse racing as well as beginners. Friendly staff and fascinating pieces.
  • Some fascinating stuff in here! Lots of great information and even though I'm not knowledgeable on horses myself there was a good level of information for all types of people. What really made the museum shine was John (employee) who shared some fascinating insights into the industry from first hand knowledge, an absolute joy to listen to and really made the trip great, could have listened all day. Got dragged into having a go on the racing simulator by my other half! More tiring than I expected, but fun in the end! Looking forward to the new premises, will be back to see it.
  • really enjoyed our visit, the horse simulator is great!
  • Quite a surprisingly museum.
