The Kentucky Derby may only come once a year, but visitors can experience the heritage and history of the event any time of year at the Kentucky Derby Museum. Located less than ten minutes from our downtown Louisville hotel, at the museum, visitors can enjoy a historic walking tour of Churchill Downs, where the Kentucky Derby is held, along with an immersive 360 degree high definition film, "The Greatest Race," and two floors of exhibits consisting of over 20,000 items and artifacts. There are also several interactive exhibits, such as a simulated horse race, where visitors can compete in a virtual Kentucky Derby, as well as test their Derby IQ to see what they’ve learned at the museum. So embrace the equestrian spirit of the Derby and learn about this fine Kentucky tradition.

Address: 704 Central Avenue, Louisville
