See & Be Seen: 150 Years of Derby Fashion

Opening July 2024

Coming to the racetrack dressed to impress has been a part of the Kentucky Derby experience since the very beginning. As we celebrate the 150th anniversary running of the historic race, we are taking a look back at the origins of the fashion tradition, how it developed, and what makes it so unique. Experience the color, glamor, and humor of the railbird runway with historic and contemporary ensembles, headwear, and accessories that give meaning to seeing—and being seen—on Derby Day.
