Kentucky Derby Museum Membership
The Kentucky Derby Museum invites you to join in the thrill and excitement with us where EVERY DAY IS DERBY DAY!
Membership to the Kentucky Derby Museum contributes to preserving the history and presenting the passion that makes up the Thoroughbred industry and the Kentucky Derby and helps promote our mission To ENGAGE, EDUCATE, and EXCITE EVERYONE
about the extraordinary experience that is the Kentucky Derby!
In addition, the Kentucky Derby Museum offers so much more to the community. The education department offers free educational programs to all public and parochial schools within the states of Kentucky and Indiana that focus on Core Academic standards. Through these programs, students learn about the economics, history and significance of the Kentucky Derby.
The Kentucky Derby Museum grew from J. Graham Brown's dedicated vision of keeping the tradition and pageantry of Thoroughbred racing and the Kentucky Derby alive. Without the vital support of our members, we would not be able to continue this vision. The Museum is devoted to expanding the public's awareness, appreciation and understanding of the evolution and meaning of the Kentucky Derby, as one of America's most familiar and enduring cultural events.
The generosity of our members support every aspect of the Museum's growth and development.
