Kentucky Sports Attractions
In Kentucky, sports aren’t just a weekend hobby. Sports are what Kentuckians live and breathe. The thrill of 23,000 fans jam-packed in the University of Kentucky’s Rupp Arena going crazy for the Wildcats. The throttle-pounding action of Kentucky car racing at the Kentucky Speedway. The passion and emotion of thoroughbred racing. And the many sports-related attractions such as the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and the Muhammad Ali Center.
Kentucky Sport Museums
In downtown Louisville, you’ll find two interactive sports museums: the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and the Muhammad Ali Center. Marked by a 120 foot tall bat (a Guinness World Record) the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, offers baseball fans a one-of-a-kind experience with everything from batting cages to factory tours and personalized bats.
Inside the Muhammad Ali Center, you’ll have the chance to experience the heart of a champion. The center tells the story of the man born as Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. with art, multimedia and interactive exhibits such as shadow boxing and speed and heavy bags.
Kentucky car racing and motorsports enthusiasts will be glad to know the state is home to the National Corvette Museum as well. Located in Bowling Green — just a quarter mile from the one and only Corvette assembly plant in the U.S. — the National Corvette Museum has more than 30 vintage 'Vettes on display, an interactive museum and even an on-site restaurant for visitors. Corvettes have a long reputation as one of America’s finest sports cars. Corvette races are coming soon to a track across the street from the museum.
