  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bluegrass fan? You should visit here!
  • A nice, well done display of the history of bluegrass music.
  • They do great work in town, sending bands to play in schools, hosting romp, the museum is nice too.
