Though even if you are not a horse-racing fan, this museum will surely make you one. The Kentucky Derby Museum has a small collection of videos and memorabilia of famous racing horses and jockeys, but those are truly worth seeing. Not to mention the beautiful grounds that this building is placed and the magnificent style it was built in.

The only that is a bit disturbing are the crossover sounds because you can't really focus on anything you would want to watch or listen to, because you can hear the other exhibition or movie review. All in all, it is worth the visit! Entertaining and informative.

Address:
704 Central Ave, Louisville, KY 40208, USA

Price:
Children $5 and adults $13

9am to 5pm daily.
