The Bill Monroe Museum
Open to the public since April 2018, the Museum has been a long time coming for fans and friends of the “Father of Bluegrass.”
Bill Monroe was born just down the road from Rosine, Kentucky on Jerusalem Ridge. His boyhood home was restored and has welcomed guests from all over the world since its opening ceremony. Bill walked among the ruins of the old Homeplace knowing plans for the restoration were in the works. He sat with a painter as they mixed colors to get just the right shade of green for the trim. Unfortunately, he cannot tell us about colors for the museum, but we know his spirit is with us as the project is completed.
Many of the folks in Rosine can still recall stories and their actual days spent with Bill and his family. These are the tales and legends that will make the museum a unique tribute to the man.
There will be a $5.00 charge ( children under 11 $3.00) there is a yearly pass for unlimited visits. Individual $20.00 Family $25.00
