When you propose to your soulmate at Kentucky Derby Museum and Churchill Downs, you add a piece of your own family history to ours. As Churchill Downs’ exclusive tour partner, Kentucky Derby Museum is in the unique position to offer two private experiences that allow the perfect location for your proposal.
Surprise your soulmate by popping the question during a 30-minute private tour of Churchill Downs Racetrack. As you make your way from ground level to the 4th floor of the clubhouse, you will enjoy the historic scenery and stories that have lasted since the first Kentucky Derby in 1875. Once you’ve reached the iconic Twin Spires, our professional photographer will capture the excitement of your special moment, 48 feet high above the legendary racetrack.
*Available during non-live race dates only.
Enjoy a private 30-minute guided tour of Churchill Downs Racetrack, ending with a private viewing of the Museum’s signature movie, "The Greatest Race.” The 360- degree, 18-minute movie in our racetrack-shaped theater is an immersive tribute to the Kentucky Derby. Following the movie, your customized and personal message will appear on the screens. Imagine seeing the words "_____ will you marry me?" on a 10’ tall screen, 20’ in the air!
