Museum director Anne-Marie Hogan said: “Not only does the museum present a rich and fascinating insight into a sport which is very much at the centre of the nation’s story, it is also a great day out for everyone, whether or not they have an interest in horseracing.

"We are a valuable hub for the community and believe our unique combination of art, heritage, horses, on-site restaurants and gardens is the Jewel in the Suffolk Crown.”
