Ask a Curator

Saturday, November 16, 2019

10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

First Floor exhibit area across from the Museum’s Great Hall

Are you a collector of Kentucky Derby and horse racing memorabilia? Are you interested in finding out more about the history behind your item and getting information on how to better preserve it? If so, bring your item to the Kentucky Derby Museum on Saturday, November 16 and “Ask a Curator” these questions. The curatorial staff also welcomes questions about its exhibits, artifacts in the museum collection and Kentucky Derby and Thoroughbred racing history. The Museum will also accept questions via Facebook the week leading up to the event. Some of the most interesting questions will be answered during the Ask a Curator event via Facebook Live. The main purpose of this event is to engage with the community and offer a window of time to make curatorial staff available to the public. The general public has helped tell and preserve the history of the Kentucky Derby throughout the institution’s history.

*Please note that as a non-profit organization, Kentucky Derby Museum cannot legally nor ethically provide appraisals or valuations for items.
