The Museum of Polo and Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization to celebrate the sport of polo.


It was founded by four polo players, H. Jeremy Chisholm, Philip L. B. Iglehart, Leverett S. Miller, and George C. Sherman, Jr. in Lexington, Kentucky in 1988. The first inductions into the hall of fame were in 1990. In 1997, it was relocated to a ten-acre estate in Lake Worth, Florida.

The museum includes a trophy by Paul Storr and paintings by Franklin Brooke Voss, George Derville Rowlandson and Paul Brown.
