Lovely museum. Worth visiting just to see the sculpture in the lobby. We went for the Munnings show, which was magnificent. The people couldn't have been nice. Had problems trying to figure out out the library organizes its books.

The current Munnings exhibit is absolutely amazing. Well worth the time to take an hour or so, slow down from the bustle of Main Street and see some amazing sporting art. This fantastic exhibit is free! Check NSL website of hours.

Absolutely spectacular. Visit this at least once while it's here. Munnings' equestrian paintings are stunning and the exhibit is free!

The National Sporting Library and Museum is a real treasure. Both are well worth visitng (free!). We were there the day after Thanksgiving and we were the only ones in the museum. The exhibitions are very high quality. I highly recommend stopping by. The buildings are real architectural gems.
