Stopped by on a rainy day after touring the Eisenhower Presidential Library across the street and were delighted to meet and pet the pair of "greeter" dogs at the door and chat with the pleasant docent. But the 10-minute video explaining roots of the sport...More

A very neat place to visit for some great history about the greyhound industry. Interactive displays...and you can pet a real greyhound. Located right across the street from the Eisenhower Museum.

Dedicated to the greyhound racing history, this is worth a quick stop if you happen to be in the area. There's a short 10 minute film on the industry and a small, somewhat disappointing museum that is sorely in need of an update. (When I...More
