You will need an entire day to fully enjoy this tribute to the fastest two minutes in sports. While actually seeing Churchill Downs, and the working class community which surrounds it, can be demistifying, the musuem itself is loaded with all manner of displays and activities which give you the full Derby experience. Make sure you start with viewing the film in the theater in the round, it will give you goose bumps. Then you can relive it several times as you walk around the second floor and look down on the open theater while you're viewing the exhibits. And, Mint Juleps are available in the cafe on site. For added enjoyment, take the backside tour which costs extra. It certainly ranks up there with some of other sports hall of fames around the U.S.
