  • This museum is a hidden American gem! We were told by staff that it is the third best collection of miniatures in the world, superseded by only London and Chicago. We loved looking at all the tiny furniture and other accoutrements that dress these rooms. The craftsmanship involved in making these things is almost unbelievable! What a great privilege it was to be able to visit this wonderful museum. The Kentucky history part of the museum was lovely too.
  • The Wedding Dress Exhibit was incredible. The dresses told a wonderful story. I was lucky enough to have my own personal tour guide who knows so much history about the dresses, the women that wore them and the whole town of Maysville. Thank you Marla Toncray!
  • Fantastic little museum. Well worth the stop. Highly recommend.
