    I did the overnight tour here and it was so awesome. The tour guides were great. I would love to come back and do it again someday. I drove over 9 hours (one way!) just for this place and it was well worth the drive and the money.

    Had a wonderful time! Was on my "bucket list", went with an open mind and was not disappointed. Lots of history here! We did the 930 pm paranormal tour. Expected to be scared or have a super weird encounter but oddly enough was very comfortable on the tour, even with a lot of it being in the dark, and privileged to have encountered the Shadow People on 4th floor. Definitely an experience I won't forget! Now I can't wait to take a look at my pics to see if there's something in them that i did not clearly see!

    Wanna go again! I went for my 14 birthday because I'm so into paranormal things (even though I don't believe) and abandonded places and had an amazing time! Heard a baby cry. No baby. Didn't necessarily freak me out but made me startled for a bit because I didnt expect anything. Went through the photos and we think we caught a shadow person in a doorway. Still don't believe in the paranormal. Please make me believe soon! Coming back again real soon!

    I've always wanted to go. I'm so happy I did. I took my daughter's and it was a very educational experience. Learned a lot of history about the place

    Very cool to check out, the history behind it is amazing! Their rates for overnight stays are also amazing, we're definitely planning a trip in the future!

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
