Owensboro is home to several unique attractions, such as the International Bluegrass Music Museum, the only international museum dedicated to preserving and showcasing the history, collections, and artifacts of bluegrass music - an exciting, original American art form with its genesis in Kentucky, and the RiverPark Center, a bustling Regional Performing Arts and Civic center that hosts more than 1,000 events each year, including professional Broadway tour performances. We are also home to the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art, the Owensboro Museum of Science and History, and the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden.
