This museum gives an excellent overview to the rich history of harness racing, with well-designed displays, well-written history and even a chance to take a simulated trip in a harness sulky. Good stuff!

Well worth the visit... if you have any interest in or experience with harness racing this visit is well worth the time. Lots of history. Young children will last about 1/2 hour looking at the exhibits, then they will run out of interest. Adults will...More

Everyone within 40 minutes needs to come to this place. It’s a beautiful Victorian racetrack- as if Saratoga were miniaturized. Local residents need to support such an unusual place located in the heart of downtown Goshen. It’s Americana at its best.
