Kentucky Derby Museum, Louisville Reviews

  • The Kentucky Derby Museum gave a powerful and inspiring presentation of over 120 years of racing at Churchill Downs. The video is a must see! There are tributes to the great horses and information on raising and training champions. There is a fun section on hats worn to the derby!

  • This is a really fun place for you and the kids. Although if you are wanting to go on a tour and see a race the same visit that's not possible. And you may consider bringing cash and making sure you or your little ones can walk in the heat(if your planning to go on a tour). However this experience was extremely fun and a great leaning experience for the kids (even though they think it's just fun😁)! I say go for it and maybe after go for a milkshake (that made my kids happy)!! ❤️

  • Private viewing of the museum though our company was awesome! We spent a lot of time reading and taking pictures. The tour was very interesting! History is deep.

  • This was an amazing experience. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did and I never expected to learn as much as I did. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Go on the 30 minute tour. Watch the 360° surround movie. Then look at every exhibit both upstairs and downstairs. You'll be glad you did.

  • Interesting museum to learn about horse racing. The regular tour is alright but you should try to book the Barn and Backside Van Tour during a race day during the race which is what we did, by coincident. You'll get to see lots of action as many people getting the horses ready. you'll also get to see the horses going to the starting gate at a closeup which you cannot see as well from the grandstand.
