Museum Rentals


When you celebrate your special day at the Kentucky Derby Museum you add a piece of your own family history to ours. The cherished treasures of the first Saturday in May. The legends in horseracing. The traditions, the pageantry, and history. The silks and saddles ridden to victory.

From the classic elegance of The Great Hall to the contemporary charm of our café and new outdoor terrace, our venue spaces provide the perfect blend of modern amenities and Kentucky tradition. Indoor and covered outdoor spaces offer versatile layout options that can be tailored to fit your unique style, with a rich array of add-on experiences – including a walking tour of Churchill Downs and an appearance by the Official Derby Bugler – to make your wedding as memorable for your guests as it is for you.
