With a National Art Pass you get
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
Based in the heart of Newmarket, the home of British horseracing, the museum showcases the history, science and art of the sport of kings, and was a finalist for Art Fund Museum of the Year 2017.
The National Horseracing Museum at Palace House in Newmarket combines three attractions in one: the National Horseracing Museum, the Fred Packard Museum and Galleries of British Sporting Art, and a flagship home for the Retraining of Racehorses charity.
The museum holds a nationally and internationally significant collection of fine and decorative art, social history objects, archive material and photographs relating to the history and science of the sport and industry of horseracing, as well as BSAT’s collection of British sporting paintings, prints and sculpture.
The racehorse retraining facility provides an opportunity for the public to encounter live racehorses in the site’s restored stables and newly built arena.
Opened in November 2016 by Queen Elizabeth II, the redevelopment of the venue affirmed the historic status of Newmarket as the internationally recognised home of horseracing, providing the widest possible survey of the sport's cultural and historic importance in the UK.
