Virtual Field Trips

Dear Educators across the Commonwealth,

We at the Kentucky Derby Museum are sending our best wishes to all of you in the trenches as you educate and inspire your students in this strange new education landscape.

So many things have changed - but one thing that has not is our commitment to the students and educators in our state. Although we miss having thousands of students visit the Museum, we are proud to offer a robust version of our field trip through a virtual platform. Our field trips are designed to complement and reinforce curriculum, as well as give your students an opportunity to "travel" to one of Kentucky's great historic and cultural landmarks.

Please let me know if you'd like more information, or any way we can help your school out during these times.
