Located in a former carriage house and stables on the grounds of Hopelands Gardens since 1977 this museum highlights the accomplishments of local Aiken Training track champion Thoroughbreds (39 of them to be exact). So many racing trophies and silver mint julep cups are exhibited there as well as fascinating old photos, articles and some actual racing silks! Upstairs in the museum are areas that will debute in Fall of 2014 -- a horse racing research library, a children's learning area with blackboards at the perfect reach for small ones to use and a replica of what a horse groom's living quarters looked like back in the day.
