Artist in Residence: Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft
May 16-18, 2016: Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft is coming to Kentucky Derby Museum for a hands-on art workshop. Also included is a special Behind the Scenes “Art Tour” of Churchill Downs Racetrack.
After-School Programs for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadets and Senior Girl Scouts.
Bring your troop for a fun and educational experience after school. Your visit includes a tour of Churchill Downs Racetrack, a viewing of The Greatest Race and an optional education program or craft activity. Free admission for all Kentucky troops and Indiana troops in the counties of Clark, Floyd, Harrison and Washington during our Free Kids period, November through March.
Now Girl Scouts who visit the Kentucky Derby Museum can take home more than just fun memories, they can remember their trip with an official Girl Scout patch! The new patch is available through the Finish Line Gift Shop and will be available upon request. To earn the patch, girls must meet a list of requirements. The troops will visit the Kentucky Derby Museum, or for those girls outside of a reasonable traveling distance they can visit our website. Then, based on their troop level, the girls will bake Derby foods, decorate a Derby hat, or participate in several other activities to earn the patch. It's a fun and exciting way to learn about the horses that run in the Kentucky Derby!
