Kentucky Derby Museum stands together with our community against racism. May we all seek to be a positive light for Louisville and the world.
Excellent visit to Kentucky Derby Museum! The staff were excellent, the tour was great, the movie is awesome. We just did the tour included with admission. I was very impressed with the cleanliness procedures during Corona. Staff were seen cleaning the seats after the movie, door handles, and stylus pens were provided to touch interactive exhibits. Kudos to all!
