HRI Edited Release – This project, called the Hall of Fame Education Experience, will create a destination that invites audiences to feel the exhilaration of thoroughbred racing, the passion behind the heritage of the sport, and the thrill of exploring the stories of those who reveal “what it takes” to be among the greatest of the greats.
The Hall of Fame Education Experience will:
Draw visitors into the incredible experience of thoroughbred racing
Inspire existing and new fans through the understanding of the deep level of ability and mastery of craft required for jockeys, trainers and owners to reach the highest levels in this sport
Magically transport visitors into the presence and inspiring stories of the Hall of Fame legends at a transformative moment in the story
Motivate visitors to continue their exploration through the Museum and to share their enthusiasm long after their visit
Establish a new standard for dramatic and immersive interactive experiences throughout the Museum
We will accomplish these goals through a larger-than-life cinematic experience that will inspire visitors’ emotional engagement with the story — a thrilling exploration of the question, “What does it take to be among the greatest of the greats, to be a member of the National Museum of Racing‘s Hall of Fame?”
We need your help to cross the finish line. A $20 million capital campaign was started August of 2018 and has already raised over $11 million in pledges. This project will not only excite current fans of thoroughbred racing but will appeal to an entirely new fan base by bringing the emotion and excitement of the sport to everyone who experiences it. The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame will be a must-see destination and a living, breathing institution that continues to honor the sport’s legendary horses and people.
