Event Calendar


April 14 - December 31, 2014


This upcoming feature exhibit at the Kentucky Derby Museum explores the sense of play that is a true part of the world’s greatest sporting event. Horseplay will showcase equine toys and games in a hands-on experience for kids and adults alike. Taking the form of an interactive game, visitors will activate the sights and sounds around them progressing from a history of horse toys and games to over-sized versions of the artifacts themselves. Drawing from over 140 years of history, Horseplay will highlight artifacts, photographs and videos displaying the playful, mischievous, and exciting event the Derby is today.

This exhibit will be located on the second floor in the Matt Winn Gallery.
