Saratoga Racetrack is the oldest in the US and all the history is on display and full of memento's of winning horses and many more.

Despite knowing that Saratoga is known for it's racing scene, I was not too enthused about visiting this museum. However, the rain forced us to seek an indoor activity. I immediately changed my mind! The building itself is beautiful, and the staff friendly. An added...More
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. The facility is so well done and truly fulfils its mission to preserve and promote the history of Thoroughbred racing in America and to honor the sport's most accomplished horses,...More
I am not a big fan of horse racing but I am a fan of this museum. We read that it takes about 1 to 1.5 hours to see the exhibits but it took about 2 hours and we rushed through because the museum was...More
We learned a lot at this museum. It presents more like an art museum because many of the stories are told through paintings, trophies, and sculptures. The amount of reading is a good balance. You learn a lot but also leave with some back stories...More

The date for the induction into the Hall of Fame has moved around in recent years. (I'm on the Voting Panel for the Hall of Fame, so I keep abreast of such things.) It USED to be on the second Friday in August, but this year (2017) -- it was changed to the FIRST Friday. Best to put a reminder to yourself, to check the Museum's website for updates, starting in early April when the new Inductees' names will be announced. :)

There is a lot of Saratoga history that can be done on foot with a dog if that helps. Congress Park, Saratoga Spa State Park and touring the local streets to look at Victorian homes. You can get self guiding walking tour... More
There is a lot of Saratoga history that can be done on foot with a dog if that helps. Congress Park, Saratoga Spa State Park and touring the local streets to look at Victorian homes. You can get self guiding walking tour material at the Visitor Center. Also, the Saratoga National Battlefield is not far and you can drive that in your own vehicle Enjoy your visit.
