The Kentucky Derby Museum invites you to join in the thrill and excitement of "Every Derby, Every Day."

Membership in the Kentucky Derby Museum contributes to preserving the history and presenting the passion that makes up the Thoroughbred Industry and 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 Kentucky Derby 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 supports every aspect of the Museum's growth and development.

The Kentucky Derby Museum offers three categories of participation; Individual, Corporate and Farm / Thoroughbred Industry, and several levels within each category. Each category offers a wide array of options and benefits for membership. Simply choose the category that best suits your preferred level of participation.
