Kentucky Museums and Memorials

Because of the state’s rich history and heritage, you’ll find dozens of Kentucky museums and memorials commemorating everything from the Civil War to music, bourbon and horses.

Celebrate the legends of Kentucky horse racing at Churchill Downs’ Kentucky Derby Museum, and the International Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park. Visit the childhood home of Abraham Lincoln in Hodgenville, KY, or view the Civil War battlefields of Perryville and Richmond.

Hear some of the earliest, most influential sounds of American music, and discover dozens of famous native Kentucky musicians at the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame Museum. While in Owensboro, don't forget to stop by The International Bluegrass Music Museum.
