The Museum was opened to the public on Saturday, October 26, 1991 by Equine Cultural Affairs Foundation of Japan.
The Museum are made up with the Memorial Hall of Fame which exhibits award famous horses and horsemen, the Gallery and the Special Exhibition Room for various exhibitions, three permanent exhibition rooms, the Museum Hall for multipurpose like exhibitions and events, 4-D screen with 5.1ch surround sound theater “Thoroughbred”, virtual racing simulator “Narikiri Jockey (you might be a Jockey)” and the Entrance Hall, etc. There is a walkthrough promenade in the shape of the Epsom Racecourse at the garden of the Museum.
There are burns for JRA riding & attraction horses within 5 minute walk from here and every weekend you can enjoy horseback riding and carriage riding. If you look up at the “Hiyoshi-ga-oka hill park”, you will see so many families playing with their kids, and we make up “the Horse Park” at the east side of the Tokyo Race Course. We hope you will have best time with your family or friends at the JRA Tokyo Race Course, and looking forward to meeting you at our Museum.
