  • This used to be the old Swimming Pool and the Museum was the old Ice House. I believe that a Battle was fought here during the Civil War.

  • We visited the Civil War, as well as the other two museums included and we learned a lot and enjoyed the time. The host who was from Texas, was very funny and helpful.

  • What a great place, so much history! Alot of great displays with plenty of artifacts. Then you can go outside to the little village, real cabins that you can go into and check out some more history. They also have two more museums up the street but we were running out of time and were unable to check them out. But your ticket is good for 2 days, we will definitely go back to check out the rest.
  • This was so much fun! THe kids loved it as well. Being outside and able to roam around and discover what is inside the cabins. Old trades were shown and some history about local native americans. Nice short walk, it has a ramp if you cannot do stairs!
  • Civil War Museum was very nice. It's a self-guided tour with most antiques nicely displayed in large glass cases, many tall enough for a human. The day we were there, a living history reenactor was there to show and tell many items of the period. He was very knowledgeable and related well with people. The Pioneer Village has some interesting cabins with a paved path. The day we were there, reenactors were supposed to be there until 5 pm. However, we went at 3 pm and the Village was empty with a few cabins open, disappointing. Interest in frontier life is better served at Old Fort Harrod or Fort Boonsboro.
  • Enjoyed seeing the Old Bardstown village. One ticket paid for this adventure as well as three other museums. Definitely worth it!
  • Old Bardstown Village, A collection of ten original 18th and 19th Century log structures that form a Colonial period settlement along Bardstown’s Museum Row. The property has nice paved walkway to each cabin. The cabins have period displays and historical artifacts inside A natural waterway runs through the village it powers the water wheel at the mill house . The path has several bridge crossings and a hidden covered bridge. It’s a relaxing adventure into the past history of Kentucky
