Museums: Climb onto a model horse and pretend to be a jockey in the starting gate where there are life-sized videos of what it's like to be in front of the riders. In 2010, the museum underwent a $5.5 million dollar renovation and now has even more exhibits for all ages. The Warner L. Jones, Jr. Time Machine shows footage from past Kentucky Derbies - going as far back as 1918 - as well as interviews with owners and jockeys. In the sound-proof room, visitors can experience what it's like to be an announcer, and on the second floor they can learn about the horse-naming process.
