It's a very nice place with the history of Kentucky. We were there for the Memorial of Officers of Kentucky who passed away while working and other causes of death. Our son died on the way to work last year.It was very nice.

The museum was entertaining and educational, though some of the mannequins and animatronics were a bit spooky. Great, expansive genealogical/historical library.

Greg Schuckmann

Elaine Campbell

very helpful staff, lots to learn and see


Friendly and helpful staff. Museum was bigger than I expected. I would definitely recommend this place. There's a little area for little kids to play and they also have a gift shop.

Julia Darlington

Fantastic sights. Beautiful place. Awful tour guide. He could NOT stay focused on the task or topic. Took waaaayyy too long. It's bad when the older couple who have seen the world and taken many tours have to leave the tour because the guide is taking toooo long.

Billy Warfield

burn after reading

The attendants were very knowledgeable and entertained all our questions

Fantastic for research and information.

bridget sperl

Appallingly racist - there is an exhibit that asks people what they would do during the civil war - for example - how would you treat your slaves? Or - what if you were pro union and owned slaves? Do you keep your slaves and not join the union? These questions should not be in any museum. Hard to believe this exhibit is allowed to continue.

Paul Fallis

Nice place for kids.

Brent Coomes

Very neat place

Rhonda Miller

Bill Jordan

Plenty of genealogical info available. ..polite staff....enjoyable historical furnishings

John Coffey

Although there aren’t very many things to look at inside the main campus you do get access to three different areas, including a guided tour of the old capital building. For $8 you can spend a nice afternoon learning about the perfectly mediocre state of Kentucky, and it’s capital. That’s quite a deal, especially for Kentuckians.

Sherri Racki

Great place to take the kids to learn Kentucky's rich history. Loved it here. It was very interesting and reasonably priced.

Bennie Greer

Great place to see Kentucky history. Self guidedo was just fine.
