  • 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.
  • Friendly and educational! Not only is the permanent exhibit constantly being updated and refreshed, but there's usually some kind of rotating special exhibit. They also have an awesome genealogical library for research and friendly people to help.
  • The museum was entertaining and educational, though some of the mannequins and animatronics were a bit spooky. Great, expansive genealogical/historical library.
  • Wonderful museum, great staff, nice giftshop!
  • Great place to see Kentucky history. Self guidedo was just fine.
