  • New museum making an effort but somewhat misses the mark. Turns out to be a lot of reading in line with other history museums but the displays while modern are not compelling.

  • Lovely wedding venue. Rooftop views of the river and the city. Weather was perfect mid-October. Guests were able to see much of museum's interesting exhibits. Catered buffet, open bar, music and dancing. Parking behind building is a bit of a walk. Inside there are elevators.
  • I've been wanting to visit for years now as a local, but today was the first time we made a visit happen. It was a great experience! Very few people on a rainy Monday afternoon which added to the experience. As a lifelong Kentuckian I thought I had heard most of the stories about "who's who", inventions, events, etc...Boy was I wrong! I learned several surprising facts, and felt it was an afternoon well spent. There was a good mix of interactivity along with the reading and visual elements. My two teenagers aged 17 and 13 were engaged. Note: My 17 year old is got a free membership as a Kentucky college student, so she can visit as much as she'd like. Nice perk for KY and IN college students! In 3 hours we still hadn't seen it all, which was nice. It leaves us something to look forward to on out next visit.
  • So rich information that I never knew about Kentucky. They had really good information. I really like the third floors which is full of spirits, speakeasy, and details of bourbon. It was great experience. I would love to come back for more.
  • Wonderful place. Exhibits provide content on ways in which bourbon was made. The bourbon collection room is amazing!!! It has all brands of bourbon that is currently sold on the market. Next to it, there is a room depicting a bar. It’s also beautiful. The museum also gives the history of Kentucky, and even touch base on the part on native Americans.
  • This is a museum about the history of Kentucky and it does a great job of doing that. It has a great exhibit on the making of bourbon and the history of bourbon. I bought some bourbon in the gift shop because it just felt like the right thing to do. Really attractive museum.
