Welcome to our collection

The National Horseracing Museum was founded to be a world-class museum celebrating the development of Thoroughbred horseracing and breeding in Great Britain.

The museum is situated in the centre of Newmarket, England in King Charles II’s former palace and stable yards. Three charities – the National Horseracing Museum, the British Sporting Art Trust, and the Retraining of Racehorses charity – have breathed life into the site after a period of disrepair.

The museum cares for and displays social history, science and art collections, dating from the 17th century through to the present day. It is also the home for artworks belonging to the British Sporting Art Trust. The collection relates to the history and science of horseracing.
