You’ll visit the oldest sections of Churchill Downs and then wind your way to the balcony overlooking the Twin Spires™ for incredible photo opportunities of the racetrack and Louisville skyline. We dare you to get into the Halloween spirit with us!

I visited the museum as part of its annual Horses and Haunts Tour during October. Our guides Heather and Molly were excellent guides, providing a lot of history to this native and Derby attendee (for 45+ years)! It was super cool to see the track at night and hear these stories under the hallowed spires. Highly recommend visiting the museum and taking advantage of this tour every October!
