Get ready to embark on the most exclusive tour Kentucky Derby Museum has to offer! The Around the Track Golf Cart Tour takes you through the history, pageantry and legacy of the Churchill Downs Racetrack and the Kentucky Derby. You will have a totally unique experience at the home of the "Greatest Two Minutes in Sports," from the grandstand to the backside and everywhere in between. You’ll begin from the outside grounds, travel through the Paddock, then relish a morning rail side workout session. Next you’ll travel through the famous infield tunnels to the backside to enjoy an up close and personal view of the horses, jockeys and trainers and see the barns that once were home to Thoroughbred legends. The tour wraps up with lunch in the private Post Time Kitchen, with a unparalleled view of the track and famed Twin Spires. The tour price also includes general admission to the Kentucky Derby Museum, where you will enjoy two floors of interactive exhibits that bring the extraordinary experience that is the Kentucky Derby right to you!
Tours are available rain or shine. Umbrellas are not allowed due to safety restrictions for Thoroughbreds on the track. In the event it does rain we suggest bringing ponchos and rain boots. The Derby Museum Store also sells souvenir ponchos.
*All tours depart on-time from the lobby. To make sure you get on your tour, we recommend you check in 15 minutes prior to tour departure time.
