"We had a great time doing the tour at the Kentucky Derby Museum. If you want to do the behind the scenes tour then I recommend to book in advance. It was very clean, socially distant, interactive and informative experience. It definitely encourages us to try and come back in the future to enjoy a race. Highly recommend this tour and would come back again."
