Kentucky Derby Museum Membership

The Kentucky Derby Museum invites you to join in the thrill and excitement with us where every day is Derby day!

Membership to the Kentucky Derby Museum contributes to preserving the history and presenting the passion that makes up the Thoroughbred industry and the Kentucky Derby. In addition, it aids the 501(c)3 non-profit to promote the Museum's mission to engage, educate, and excite everyone about the extraordinary experience that is the Kentucky Derby!

Your involvement will directly impact the expansion of the public's awareness, appreciation and understanding of the evolution and meaning of the industry and Kentucky Derby. Your Membership will also support the education department which offers free educational programs to all public and parochial schools within the states of Kentucky and Indiana. Through these programs, students learn about the economics, history and significance of the Thoroughbred industry and the Kentucky Derby.

Without the vital funding of our Members, we would not be able to continue this vision.
