Inside the Crown: A Century of Champions Vault Tour & Twilight Racing Experience

Enjoy a truly unique experience with the Kentucky Derby Museum. Start with a private Historic Walking Tour to learn about the history and pageantry of Churchill Downs racetrack then try a Mint Julep in our Cafe. Take time to explore the Museum’s two floors of interactive exhibits before your exclusive meet and greet with a Museum curator who will take you on a journey through Thoroughbred racing history with a focus on the centennial of the Triple Crown. You will have the chance to get up close and personal with rare artifacts not currently available to the general public as well as highlights like the 1919 Sir Barton Presentation Cup and the Citation Triple Crown trophy and saddle cloth. Our curator will offer stories and behind-the-scenes details for each item. You’ll close out the evening with a ticket to Twilight Racing under the lights at Churchill Downs.
