Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame and Museum

Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame and Museum Review

The area's horse farms have produced many national champions, which are commemorated here. Exhibits include horse-related decorations, paintings, and sculptures, plus racing silks and trophies. The Hall of Fame is on the grounds of the 14-acre Hopelands Gardens, where you can wind along paths past quiet terraces and reflecting pools. There's a Touch and Scent Trail with Braille plaques. Open-air free concerts and plays are presented on Monday evening May through August.
