Kentucky Derby Museum

Launch your look into Kentucky’s love affair with horses by visiting the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs in Louisville and the International Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, two of the finest horse museums in the world. While at the Horse Park, check out the American Saddlebred Museum (included in park admission) for its great displays, interactive ride-the-horse for kids and of course the Kentucky Horse Park gift shop. Make the acquaintance of retired thoroughbred champions at Old Friends at Dream Chase Farm in Georgetown. The Bluegrass state is simply the best place to get up close and personal with four-hooved friends.

Make plans today to visit the Kentucky Derby Museum, then head to the International Museum of the Horse (and don’t forget to grab a souvenir from the Kentucky Horse Park gift shop on your way out).
