  • Asked for a refund and walked out. The museum starts with a film about the history of bluegrass, and the film's audio is terrible. We tried to explore the rest of the museum, but quickly realized the experience had been ruined for us.
  • Love visiting this museum. The culture it promotes is distinct and interesting. Dining opportunities abound, and a walk on the beautiful riverfront make it a great day.
  • Great place to learn about, history of, and how to play bluegrass music
  • Small right now, but they're building a much larger facility.
  • A very educational experience for anyone, they are situated alongiade the River Park Center and Owensboro Symphony Orchestra. They have two levels and numerous exhibits detailing the rise of folk, country, and bluegrass music throughout the region. It was certainly a fun and eye opening trip for me.
