Nice museum, if you like history and horses, but then again if you did not like either, why did you go here? I was here for a special exhibit and it was very nice, although the security people watch you like you are going to steal something, That part I could had done with out, but still, they are just...

LOVED the American Saddlebred Museum! It was included as a part of the ticket price to the Kentucky Horse Park which was a nice surprise. I had my two kids with me and they had a ball in the children's section. Tons of interactive things for them to do. They both rode life size rocking horses, answered trivia questions on... More

This was a cute museum after visiting the Kentucky horse park. Lots of photos, trophies, a film area, and children's exploration room.

It was worth a brief visit in conjunction with the Kentucky Horse Park but not a special trip to see.

I visited during the off season late in the day so I did not have to pay admission. This museum, although rather small, is very well done and covers the history of this beautiful Kentucky horse and also some of the many trainers who made them great. They have a section for the kids which includes large saddlebred rocking horses... More

I learned a lot at this museum about The American Saddlebred Horses. There was a lot of historical information about the breed and lots of exhibits to look at. We enjoyed our visit.

I knew nothing about the Saddlebred so everything about this museum was interesting. There is a movie to start and the exhibits are varied and entertaining. It only takes about an hour and I would recommend it for those that want to know about the Saddlebred horse. It is a short walk from the entrance to Kentucky Horse Park.
