Newmarket Open

This exhibition has closed.

The National Horseracing Museum is proud to be the host venue for ‘Newmarket Open’ – an exhibition of diverse and high quality works of art by local artists based in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

Individual works have been chosen by a selection panel in the hope that the exhibition will delight and challenge visitors, as well as ensuring that a real mix of media, materials and subject matter are on display.

Many of the pieces are on sale too, so come along to see the great talent in our region and bag a unique piece of art from just £75. All proceeds will directly support the artists.

About the National Horseracing Museum:

The National Horseracing Museum is a 5-acre site in the heart of Newmarket – the long-established home of flat racing.

As an important part of the horseracing industry, we tell the story of horseracing from its earliest origins to the global phenomenon it is today. The museum contains stunning works of art, contemporary sculptures, science and breeding galleries, and some of the world’s most famous racing trophies, unique bronzes and artefacts.

Part of the museum is based in the former sporting palace of King Charles II, built over 350 years ago when the ‘Sport of Kings’ was in its infancy. Using the latest interactive and audio-visual displays, the museum takes a different look at the sport, examining the physical attributes of the elite equine athlete and the importance of the thoroughbred pedigree via our science gallery.

We also re-train retired racehorses in the Rothschild Yard, making NHRM one of the very few places in Newmarket where you can meet retired racehorses. There are daily tours too.

Whilst you’re here, why not make a day of it and book a table for lunch at The Tack Room restaurant, or order a picnic from The Bakery to enjoy in our beautiful grounds.
