Visiting Louisville

As Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville is known for being the Gateway to the South. But it is also famous for being home to the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” the Kentucky Derby—the widely watched first race of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.

The Museum is conveniently located just minutes from the Louisville International Airport (SDF) and downtown Louisville, home of Museum Row on Main.

From historic Churchill Downs Racetrack at our doorstep to the shopping, dining and nightlife of Louisville, the region’s best will be within arm’s reach.
