There's Only One...Headley-Whitney Museum
Travel a Kentucky scenic byway past beautiful horse farms on your way to the Headley-Whitney Museum. Founded in 1968 by noted local jewelry designer George Headley, the Headley-Whitney Museum has long been an icon of art and culture in the Bluegrass. The Museum features a fascinating and diverse collection of jewels, artifacts, books, shell grotto, both international and regional exhibitions, and much more. Our 13 acres of beautiful grounds are perfect for a family picnic or an afternoon stroll. We also host special events for adults & children. Come & see this jewel in the country. The Headley-Whitney Museum is six miles from downtown Lexington on Old Frankfort Pike, and four miles from Exit 6 on New Circle Road.
